Discussion with Liza Wiemer author of The Assignment

March 10, 7:00 pm


Inspired by a real-life incident, this riveting novel explores discrimination and antisemitism
and reveals their dangerous impact while showing how two brave teens found the courage
to speak up. During senior year, a favorite teacher instructs a group of students to argue
for the Final Solution. Two boys are horrified and decide they must take a stand. The
situation explodes, and acrimony and anger result. What does it take for tolerance, justice,
and love to prevail? Join us when the author shares about the real-life assignment,
the behind-the-scenes details, the incredible journey to publication as well as fascinating
World War II research. At the end she will take questions first about the presentation and
then about the book itself. The book can be found in most area libraries and on Amazon.
