About The Event
Aimie K. Runyan and Bryn Turnbull explore the power of women’s resistance during wartime in their captivating historical novels set in Paris. In Runyan's A Bakery in Paris, two women – one during the 1870 siege by the Prussians and one in 1946 having suffered a great loss after WWII– embrace love and confront impossible choices armed only with the belief that flour, yeast, sugar, and love can ignite their own revolutions. In Turnbull's The Paris Deception, estranged sisters-in-law risk their lives to rescue looted modern art from Nazi destruction, devising a daring plan to save Paris's treasures. Sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
