Jennifer Chiaverini at Boswell for Resistance Women

Jennifer Chiaverini is back and her latest novel is a textured, nail-biting WWII historical novel based on the true story of Mildred Fish Harnack, an American from Milwaukee who helped lead the resistance in Nazi-era Berlin. Chiaverini will be appearing at Boswell on Sunday, May 19 at 3 pm.

Register for the event by on-sale date (May 14, 8 am) and get 20% off on Resistance Women. That's $23.65, including tax. Note that Chiaverini's novels will be available at the event, but you must pre-register to get the discounted price. Yes, you will be able to pick up your book early, anytime after May 14, 10 am, when we open.

After Wisconsin graduate student Mildred Fish marries brilliant German economist Arvid Harnack, she accompanies him to his German homeland, where a promising future awaits. In the thriving intellectual culture of 1930s Berlin, the newlyweds create a rich new life filled with love, friendships, and rewarding work, but the rise of a malevolent new political faction inexorably changes their fate.

Inspired by actual events, Resistance Women is an enthralling, unforgettable story of ordinary people determined to resist the rise of evil, sacrificing their own lives and liberty to fight injustice and defend the oppressed. Publishers Weekly wrote: "This fictionalized version of real-life heroes is told with prose that ranges from forthright to eloquent, and the focus on the road to war and evolving attitudes regarding fascism and Nazism is exceptionally insightful, making for a sweeping and memorable WWII novel."

Don't forget to register for this event, and please consider our early bird offer for a discounted copy of Resistance Women. Help us spread the word about the registration link - it's resistancewomenmke.bpt.me. And see you on May 19, 3 pm!
