Local author Jim Shepard visited CBI to discuss his book The Book of Aron, a novel set in the Warsaw ghetto about a poor Polish-Jewish boy’s struggle to survive and a heroic historical figure, Dr. Janusz Korczak, who ran an orphanage in the ghetto. This remarkable novel offers “a testament of love during the holocaust” while also justly treating its atrocities.
