Wolk weaves together themes of prejudice, bullying, and small town life, revealing the shadows that war casts on people and communities. Join in person at the New-York Historical Society for a book club discussion. Get excited to look at objects and artifacts in the museum, discuss with your fellow readers, and chat with an expert about the book.
