Carol Dunn will lead a discussion on The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmel. This book, by the author of The Nightingale, tells the story of a young woman who finds refuge in a small town in the Free Zone in France during World War II. She begins forging identity documents for Jewish children fleeing to Switzerland and keeps a record of their real names in a book. Later when the cell they work with is betrayed she records a last vital message. Decades later she returns after seeing a photo of the book in a newspaper. Does she have the strength to seek out its answer and help reunite those lost in the war?.
