Author Reading: “Roads” by Marina Antropow Cramer — June 24. 7pm.

Marina has devoted her life to books. Please join for us on June 24th at 7pm for a reading from her first published novel, the well-reviewed “Roads,” set in Yalta and Germany at the end of WWII.

“Roads is a subtle investigation of war and everyday people struggling to find refuge…Cramer deftly illustrates the price ordinary citizens pay once the war machine is in motion. When the resolution is reached, it hovers, a tenuous moment that leaves some characters with new strength and others poised to plummet and break.” (ForeWord review)
