The Department of English invites you to a reading of Paul Levitt’s new novel Berlin Revisited.
Witnessing his mother’s trial for exposing fellow Jews to the Nazis, Baruch Posner swears never to return to Germany. As he reflects upon his exodus from Berlin to Cuba and then to America, he yearns for his father and the lovely Gemma Rosselli, his former companion in the underground. Where are they now? A letter, via the Red Cross, reaches him in New York. From Gemma, it draws him back to Berlin to join her in exploring the newly opened Nazi archives, which hold information about their parents. What’s more, in the cellar of his former living quarters, the Hotel Bogota, he finds the source of his mother’s downfall.
The reading and refreshments are free.
