Reading California Book Discussion: Winter Kept Us Warm

Come hear 2019 California Book Award silver medalist in the fiction category, Anne Raeff, talk about her book Winter Kept Us Warm. The book takes us from Berlin to New York to Morocco with its beguiling story of a love triangle that starts in World War II. From the Los Angeles Review of Books: "ANNE RAEFF’s Winter Kept Us Warm derives its name from T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, a portion of which serves as the novel’s epigraph: ‘Winter kept us warm, covering / Earth in forgetful snow, feeding / A little life with dried tubers.’ The quotation alludes to the fateful postwar winter in which the three characters at the center of the story meet." That quotation alone should make you eager to join us!
