Graphic artist, Nora Krug, will speak with Jason Lutes about her book Belonging: A German Reckons with History and Home. (Heimat is the German title.) Both award-winning authors, they have each delved into the world of WWII Germany though from different vantage points.
Born in Germany, Nora returned to explore the shadow the Nazi regime cast on culture and family. Her extraordinary quest, spanning continents and generations, pieces together her family’s troubling story and reflects on what it means to be a German of her generation.
Jason is the author of Berlin, an intricate look at the fall of the Weimar Republic through the eyes of its citizens, first published as a serial and now bound into a 580 page book.
Free and open to the public, this event is sponsored by the Leslie Center for Humanities, The Will and Ann Eisner Family Foundation, and the Center for Cartoon Studies. The Norwich Bookstore has books in stock.
