When Jillian Cantor sets about writing a novel, she first puts hours and days into researching her subject.  This was evident in her novel, The Hours Count, which we read last year.  Her new novel, The Lost Letter has required even more exacting research.  This time we are taken to Austria, in 1938, just after Kristalnacht.  Along with the atrocities of the Nazi's we also learn a bit about stamp engraving and how it relates to the forging of "papers" by the resistance.  We are introduced to sympathetic characters and a very interesting storyline that will cover more than 40 years.  Please join us on July 11th at either 2pm or 6pm in our Community Room for a face to face conversation about this interesting book.
