Join us on Thursday, January 16th at 7:30pm when we will be reading Wunderland by Jennifer Cody Epstein. Once inseparable, Berlin teenagers Ilse Fischer and Renate Bauer find their friendship ripped apart by their nation’s abrupt swing into fascism. Ilse, a so-called “Aryan,” throws her lot in with the Nazi Party, while Renate sees her once-secure world dismantled by its race laws and then shattered by a shocking betrayal. Decades later, that same betrayal will upend the life of Ilse’s daughter, Ava, as she discovers long-buried truths about her mother’s past. A harrowing page-turner, Wunderland traces the lives of three women across two generations—and the devastating repercussions of choices made in the dark days of wartime Germany.

The author is Leslie’s Weiss’ sister-in-law and will be coming to Oak Park Temple in February to discuss the book as well!​​​​​
