A benefit for Music Hall members at our Contributor-level and above, Book Club meets the second Monday of the month in the lounge at Portwalk Place from 6-7:30pm. Evenings include time for socializing followed by a moderated discussion. This month’s title is Madame Fourcade’s Secret War by Lynne Olson.
About the Book:
The little-known true story of Marie-Madeleine Fourcade, the woman who headed the largest spy network in occupied France during World War II. Now, in this dramatic account of the war that split France in two and forced its people to live side by side with their hated German occupiers, Lynne Olson tells the fascinating story of a woman who stood up for her nation, her fellow citizens, and herself.
