Please join author Katrina Shawver as she discusses her nationally-acclaimed biography "Henry - A Polish Swimmer's True Story of Friendship from Auschwitz to America." The author writes:
"Briefly, I met Henry Zguda fifteen years ago when I wrote for the newspaper, and after one meeting offered to write his story. Told in an interview format, Henry relates a life as a champion swimmer and coach, interrupted by three years imprisoned in Auschwitz and Buchenwald as a Catholic Polish political prisoner. This bridge to history is told with a pragmatic gallows humor and is supported by extensive research, original documents, and rare photos not seen elsewhere. If you are a discerning adult looking for an intelligent read, this book is for you."
This program promises to be extremely moving and engaging! The book will be for sale at this event and the author will be signing copies for attendees.
Parking is free at the Main Library after 4:00 PM.
