[VIRTUAL] LitFest: Pam Jenoff; The Woman with the Blue Star

Date: May 6, 2021
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Former diplomat and Cambridge-educated historian Pam Jenoff has become a mainstay at the top of historical fiction lists. The Orphan’s Tale (2017) sold hundreds of thousands of copies while earning weeks on bestseller lists and the follow-up The Lost Girls of Paris stayed on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists, among others, for over 20 weeks, while selling well-over a half-million copies and counting. Her deep research and emotional storytelling have made her a favorite of readers and critics alike. This spring, Jenoff will release her latest will-be blockbuster, THE WOMAN WITH THE BLUE STAR (Park Row; 5/4/21)

As with all her books, Jenoff took a small, little-known nugget from history and created a gripping and powerful story of survival against unimaginable odds. Inspired by the harrowing true stories of people who hid in the sewers beneath the streets of Europe in order to escape the Nazis, Jenoff blends vivid historical detail with a riveting and emotional story, shedding new light on this dark time in history. Jenoff is a historian with both a Ph.D and a law degree. She served in Europe for the U.S. State Department and the Pentagon and is an authority on World War II history and the Holocaust. Given her expertise in Eastern European Jewry during WWII, Jenoff’s story carries the urgency and veracity that few can match. The Woman with the Blue Star is an emotional testament to the power of friendship and the extraordinary strength of the human will to survive.
