Join us to hear Stephen Kiernan read from and talk about his new novel, The Baker’s Secret, set in a small Normandy village on the eve of D-Day.
What role must one play in a conflict? Hidden in plain sight, Emmanuelle, the young village baker, is seemingly going along with the occupying army and yet works tirelessly to make sure her community survives. The supporting cast of characters are varied and colorful, making this a welcome addition to the literature about the resistance in 1944 France.
Stephen Kiernan is a graduate of Middlebury College, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. During his more than twenty years as a journalist, he has won numerous awards. He is the author of two novels, The Curiosity and The Hummingbird, and two books of nonfiction. He lives in Vermont with his two sons.
