This May the Library invites you to attend a series of three book talks on Thursday evenings. The books are on the theme of World War II, in keeping with the Memorial Day holiday this month.
Local author Marina Dutzmann Kirsch will talk about her book “Flight of Remembrance: A Memoir of Love & Survival“. Marina has a unique connection to World War II, her father was in the Luftwaffe and eventually began working for the US Space Program after the war. This is a true story from the losing side of the war that includes two German veterans. Against the backdrop of World War II tragedy and devastation in Latvia, occupied Poland and Germany, and three tumultuous decades of European history, it provides a window into the palpitating heart of wartime upheaval through the lives of Rolf Dutzmann and Lilo Wassull — a young Latvian aeronautical engineering student and the young woman he meets in 1940Berlin after being forced to flee Latvia.
“Flight of Remembrance” was an award-winning finalist in the narrative non-fiction category of the 2012 USA Best Book Awards.
Meeting House on the Common. Free and open to the public, no registration is required to attend.
Generously sponsored by the Friends of the Lynnfield Library.
Thursday, May 31 @ 6:30 p.m. – Marina Dutzmann Kirsch, “Flight of Remembrance: A Memoir of Love & Survival”
