The Wartime Sisters – Lynda Cohen Loigman joins us for a discussion!
New York, NY – On Tuesday, January 22nd at 7:00pm, independent bookstore Book Culture on Columbus welcomes author Lynda Cohen Loigman to read from and discuss her new book, The Wartime Sisters. She will be joined in conversation by Fiona Davis.
For fans of Lilac Girls, the next powerful novel from the author of Goodreads Choice Awards semi finalist The Two-Family House about two sisters working in a WWII armory, each with a deep secret.
Two estranged sisters, raised in Brooklyn and each burdened with her own shocking secret, are reunited at the Springfield Armory in the early days of WWII. While one sister lives in relative ease on the bucolic Armory campus as an officer’s wife, the other arrives as a war widow and takes a position in the Armory factories as a “soldier of production.” Resentment festers between the two, and secrets are shattered when a mysterious figure from the past reemerges in their lives.
