Opening reading by fellow Europa author Jesse Browner
Hosted by Europa publisher Kent Carroll
Independent publisher Europa Editions is well known for distinctive literary fiction, high-end mystery and noir, and narrative non-fiction from around the world. Inspired by the story of a distant cousin who was murdered in Paris in 1937, award-winning author Michele Zackheim’s Last Train to Paris is a gripping epic about a female American reporter who writes for the Paris Courier in the 1930s. Undertaking an assignment in the Berlin press office, she is happy and in love – until Kristallnacht and the growing threat of Nazism. When World War II is declared, Americans are forced to leave the country and she must make an agonizing choice: who will go with her on the last train to Paris? Tonight’s event celebrating Michele’s new book is introduced by Europa’s publisher Kent Carroll and begins with a guest reading of new work by fellow Europa Editions author Jesse Browner (author of Everything Happens Today). Michele reads from Last Train to Paris and discusses her work with Carroll.
