World War II resistance tale at Books & Books

Author Alexandra Lehmann will do a reading and signing of her book “With You There Is Light” on Friday evening at Books & Books in Camana Bay.

The book is based on the true story of a German solder in Hitler’s army, Fritz Hartnagel, who wrote to his sweetheart Sophie Scholl about SS atrocities.

Motivated by the firsthand accounts in Hartnagel’s letters, Scholl, her brother, Hans, and their friends formed the White Rose student opposition in Munich. Today they are some of the best known figures of the German Resistance during World War II.

Books & Books is inviting the public to attend the reading, which begins at 6 p.m.
