Discussion of Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky. Beginning in Paris on the eve of the Nazi occupation in 1940, the novel tells the remarkable story of men and women thrown together in circumstances beyond their control. When Nemirovsky began writing the book, she was already a highly acclaimed writer living in Paris. But she was also a Jew, and in 1942 she was arrested and deported to Auschwitz, where she died. For 64 years, this novel remained hidden and unknown. Join us for a great discussion to be lead by Fred Cohen.
