A Discussion with Author Dr. Jane S. Gabin

Thursday, March 14, 2019, 7:30 p.m.

Dr. Jane S. Gabin’s historical novel looks at the complicated life and aftermath of the occupation of Paris during WWII and spotlights Jewish experiences during the Nazi occupation of the city. Her debut novel intertwines the two timelines of postwar Paris and the current day as a young woman seeks answers when she finds an old picture of her father, a U.S. Army private, with two women and a small boy in Paris after the war. Wishing to learn more about her father, she travels to Paris to try to find this young boy. Combining history, romance, and mystery, The Paris Photo reveals how wartime trauma can persist into the present.


Admission to the book talk is free, but reservations are required. Please arrive early and have photo ID available.
