Author Meet & Greet: Meg Waite Clayton

 On Nov. 12th from 6:30PM-7:00PM, New York Times best selling author, Megan Waite Clayton, is taking a break from her busy schedule to stop by The Mitten Word Bookshop for an intimate Meet & Greet and book signing with fans!

Author of seven books, Meg Waite Clayton's beautifully set historical fiction centers around strong female characters and the power of friendship through turbulent times. And Meg's latest book, The Last Train to London, is a "powerful pre-WWII era novel based on the true story of the Kindertransport rescue of ten thousand children from Nazi-occupied Europe—and one brave woman who helped them escape."

The Mitten Word Bookshop has copies of The Last Train to London availble for purchase and at the Meet & Greet on Nov. 12th. Get your copy early and discuss your favorite parts with the author as she signs it!

For November we'll be reading Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys! The meeting will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 13th at 6:30PM.

World War II is drawing to a close in East Prussia and thousands of refugees are on a desperate trek toward freedom, many with something to hide. Among them are Joana, Emilia, and Florian, whose paths converge en route to the ship that promises salvation, the Wilhelm Gustloff. Forced by circumstance to unite, the three find their strength, courage, and trust in each other tested with each step closer to safety.

Just when it seems freedom is within their grasp, tragedy strikes. Not country, nor culture, nor status matter as all ten thousand people—adults and children alike—aboard must fight for the same thing: survival.
