Book Discussion & Meet The Author: 'Walled-In: A West Berlin Girl's Journey To Freedom'

Join us on Wednesday, July 2nd at 6:30pm, for a book discussion on "Walled-In: A West Berlin Girl's Journey to Freedom."

J. Elke Ertle was born and raised in West Berlin following World War II, a time when the city was the focus of an escalating Cold War between East and West. During the first twenty-one years of her life, she lived with her mother and father in the British sector.

Zohreh Ghahremani, author of Sky of Red Popplies, said of Ertle's story: "A unique parellel between a young girl's life in an uncompromising family and the tensions mounting on both sides of the Berlin Wall as she finds a way to freedom. A remarkable journey."

Location: Serra Mesa-Kearny Mesa Branch Library, 9005 Aero Drive, San Diego, CA 92123 (858-573-1397) Google Maps
