Meet the Author: Rina Z Neiman
Friday, August 28, 2020
The Larkspur Library is excited to host an author talk with local author Rina Z. Neiman who will be discussing her new book Born Under Fire.
Born Under Fire is a historical novel that tells the story of a girl coming of age and her drive to excel despite the devastating effects of long-term war. Born in Jerusalem under British rule in 1928, Shula grows up in a world in turmoil as Hitler rises to power and nations enter into war. Amid a landscape of ancient stone ruins next to modern Bauhaus architecture, and desert scrub ending at newly verdant farmlands, Shula grows into her independence as the State of Israel is born. Based on historical documents and events, Born Under Fire is also about the context surrounding the founding of the State of Israel, as well as the horrors and dangers of growing up in a conflict zone.
This event is made possible by the Friends of the Larkspur LIbrary.
