Resistance Then and Now: Mary Dingee Fillmore


Date & Time: 
Nov 15 2017 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Meet author Mary Dingee Fillmore on November 15th at 7pm, at Brooks Memorial Library!

She asks us to consider the following questions: "What
would I have done to stop the Holocaust? What should I resist in our
world today?" To help us find answers, Mary will examine the dilemmas
people faced in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam – how people resisted and what
happened when they did. Together, we'll look at resistance in our own
times, and connect our experience to Rachel Klein, the teenaged
underground worker who is the heroine of Mary’s Dingee Fillmore's
award-winning novel.

She is the author of "An Address in
Amsterdam," an acclaimed historical novel about a young Jewish woman who
risks her life in the anti-Nazi underground. It’s on “must-read” lists
for Buzzfeed, Brit+Co, PopSugar, Bookstr, and Redbook, and won the
Sarton Women’s Book Award for Historical Fiction. For more information
