Normandy, 1944. World War II is rapidly ending and two American correspondents, denied access to press camps and the front, join forces with a British military photographer and race toward Paris, hoping to report its liberation and make history.
This is the setup for Meg Waite Clayton’s new book “The Race for Paris.” It’s already become a national bestseller and received Honorable Mention in the prestigious Langum Prize for American Historical Fiction.
Clayton is in Sacramento this week for an event at the Sierra 2 Center that benefits the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley.
She joins Insight to talk about her new book and her background with the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley.
