Tuesday, February 27 @ 2 PM: FOL Lecture Series: Andrew Nagorski – Hitlerland
Mr. Nagorski will be here presenting his book, Hitlerland as the Anastasia Library’s wrap up for St. Johns Reads.  Hitler’s rise to power, Germany’s march to the abyss, as seen through the eyes of Americans—diplomats, military, expats, visiting authors, Olympic athletes—who watched horrified and up close. Hitlerland offers a gripping narrative full of surprising twists—and a startlingly fresh perspective on this heavily dissected era.
