We are gearing up for our second event in the 2015 Winter/Spring Evenings with Authors series, and we hope you’re planning to be there too! Joseph Kanon will join us on Thursday, March 12 to discuss his newest novel, Leaving Berlin. Set in 1948, this spy thriller depicts East Berlin just a few years after World War II. In the novel, young Jewish writer, Alex Meier, finds himself back in Berlin after being deported from America. To save himself from this ruined city and return to America, he agrees to join the CIA, only to find out that he may not be willing to do what is expected of him.
Joseph Kanon is the Edgar Award-winning author of Istanbul Passage, and author many other bestselling novels including The Good German, which was produced into a movie in 2006 starring George Clooney. Kanon currently lives in New York City.
The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Columbus Museum of Art. For more information or to order tickets, click here.
