Author Elisabeth H. Breslav Speaks at R.J. Julia Booksellers on Feb. 23
Local writer Elisabeth H. Breslav grew up during World War II. She survived the Nazi occupation of Holland and the "Hunger Winter," which extended into 1945 as a result of the failed 1944 Allied Operation Market Garden, written about in Cornelius Ryan's A Bridge Too Far. Breslav contributed a chapter detailing her time as a child in a warzone to That Mad Game: Growing Up in a Warzone, an anthology of essays from around the globe, and will read and sign the work on Feb. 23 at R.J. Julia in Madison.
