We are pleased to welcome the bestselling author of Stones From the River to Next Chapter Bookshop for a reading and signing of her new novel, Children and Fire. In the book, set in the same place and time as Stones (Burgdorf, Germany in the early days of the Third Reich), Thekla Koppen finds her teaching position threatened by Nazi’s intent to encroach on her many cherished freedoms. She loves her students and wants to provide solace for them in the midst of chaos. She does not believe the Nazis will be in power long, and so, to keep teaching, she begins to make moral compromises she never thought she’d make. Through the stories of the individuals in Children and Fire, Ursula Hegi explores how the citizens of one society can be so easily corrupted into perpetrating the greatest horrors of modern history. Through Thekla and the people in her village, readers see the slippery slope of propaganda and fear that would lead to Hitler’s invasion of Poland, aggression in the west, and the Holocaust. Children and Fire is suspenseful, vividly rendered, and a must for fans of historical fiction. (Lanora)
