Author Talk with Sigrid MacRae at Jamesport Meeting House

September 3, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Sigrid MacRae
Sigrid MacRae will be discussing her recent book, A World Elsewhere: An American Women in Wartime Germany, on Thursday, Sept. 3, 2015 at 4 p.m. at the Jamesport Meeting House.
MacRae never knew her father until she found a trove of letters thatrevealed her parents’ intercontinental love affair and the harsh reality of living in post-World War I Germany. This beautifully crafted book tells a moving story of love, exile and survival.
Please join the Jamesport Meeting House for a  wine and cheese reception following MacRae’s presentation in the Meeting House’s 1898 Lecture Room.  A suggested donation of $10.00 will be appreciated.
Meeting House board member Beth Nehls met MacRae last year when she spoke at the 42nd Street branch of  the New York Public Library, where much of her research was done.   “I was fortunate to attend her fantastic talk,”  Beth reported.
Now we are fortunate to have the privilege of meeting MacRae in Jamesport.  This book was very positively reviewed in the New York Times Sunday Book Review on November 9, 2014.
A World Elsewhere is widely available online and at many book stores and libraries.
