Meet Colorado author Maria Sutton on Sunday, July 8 at 2 p.m. at the Schlessman Family Branch. Sutton, author of The Night Sky: A Journey from Dachau to Denver and Back takes us on a riveting journey through history and solves a WWII mystery. She was born in a Displaced Persons Camp in war-torn Germany. At age 13, she overheard a conversation that the man she had been calling "Dad" was not her biological father, Jozef. Jozef disappeared somewhere in Germany shortly after her birth. Her book is the culmination of her 43-year search to find him. Maria is a former highly trained Federal investigator who solves the impossible in this compelling and extraordinary memoir that is part history, part mystery, and always unflinchingly honest. Books will be available for sale & signing.
I was disappointed to find that DPL has no holdable copies of THE NIGHT SKY. Have we asked the Collection Development Office do something about that?
It appears you work for the denver library beckie b ('Have we asked the Collection...') yet you choose to air your disappointment as a comment. Does the DPL have email or telephones where you could ask Collections directly to buy more copy rather than talk about it like an angry teenager in public? Just wondering.
The Bookmobile has been asked to locate this copy and return it to the circulating collection and more copies are on order.
