JIM SHEPARD
Kepler's Books, Monday, June 15 at 7pm

Jim Shepard

Monday, June 15, 7:30 p.m.

The Book of Aron

"Let's hope Shepard becomes as influential as he should be. He's the best we've got." - Dave Eggers.

From the hugely acclaimed National Book Award finalist, a novel that will join the shortlist of classics about the Holocaust and the children caught up in it, The Book of Aron by Jim Shepard.

Aron, the narrator, is an engaging if peculiar young boy whose family is driven from the countryside into the Warsaw Ghetto. As his family is slowly stripped away from him, Aron and a handful of boys and girls risk their lives, smuggling and trading things through the "quarantine walls" to keep their people alive, hunted all the while by blackmailers and by Jewish, Polish, and German police (not to mention the Gestapo). Eventually Aron is "rescued" by Janusz Korczak, a Jewish-Polish doctor and advocate of children's rights famous throughout prewar Europe who, once the Nazis swept in, was put in charge of the ghetto orphanage. In the end, of course, he and his staff and all the children are put on a train to Treblinka, but has Aron managed to escape, to spread word about the atrocities, as Korczak hoped he would?

Jim Shephard has masterfully made this child's-eye view of the Warsaw Ghetto mesmerizing, sometimes comic despite all odds, and truly heartbreaking. It is nothing less than a masterpiece.

“The story of what happened to children in the Holocaust is not for the faint-hearted... Jim Shepard has written a Holocaust novel that stands with the most powerful writing on that terrible subject.” —John Irving

“Heartbreaking but never sentimental, comic but never unserious, terrifying but always engrossing, The Book of Aron brings us face to face with the unimaginable, actual truth.” —Daniel Handler

PREMIER EVENT: DAVID MCCULLOUGH
Kepler's Books, Tuesday, June 16 at 7:30pm
Credit: William B. McCullough PREMIER EVENT: David McCullough Tuesday, June 16, 7:30pm The Wright Brothers Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway Street, Redwood City Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Fox Theatre Box Office Join us for a very special evening with two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian, David McCullough. He is the author of numerous acclaimed books, including 1776, Brave Companions, The Johnstown Flood, The Great Bridge, and The Greater Journey. We're so thrilled to celebrate McCullough's new book, The Wright Brothers, in which we'll learn the story-behind-the-story of Wilbur and Orville Wright, the brothers who inspired and taught the world to fly. We know all about their achievements and the history of flight, but who were the Wilbur brothers really? McCullough, drawing on the immense collection of the Wright Papers - including private diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks, and more than a thousand letters from private family correspondence - shows us that Wilbur was unquestionably a genius, and Orville had rare mechanical ingenuity. Both brothers had an average public school education, very little money, and no contacts in high places to help them with their "mission" to take to the air. These two unknown men of exceptional courage and determination, of far-ranging intellectual interests and ceaseless curiosity, much of which they attributed to their upbringing - a house full of books if without electricity and indoor plumbing - changed history in 1903 in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This thrilling book tells the human side of The Wright Brothers' story, including the little-known contributions of their sister, Katharine, without whom things might have gone very differently for them. David McCullough has twice received the Pulitzer Prize, for Truman and John Adams, and twice received the National Book Award, for The Path Between the Seas and Mornings On Horseback. He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award.
