“Take a good book to bed, books do not snore.” — Thea Dorn
Pam’s Pick this week is: “The Book of Lost Names” by Kristin Harmel, the story of Eva, a semi-retired librarian in Florida. While shelving books she sees a photograph in a newspaper lying open. It’s the photograph of a book she hasn’t seen in 65 years. A book she recognizes as “The Book of Lost Names.” In 1942 Eva and her mother flee Paris to a small town in the Free Zone, hoping to cross into Switzerland. But Eva’s talent for forgery is discovered by the underground. She helps the Catholic townspeople save the lives of Jewish children with the forgeries.
