A Bitter Veil Book Discussion - January's Brown Bag Lunch Program

The 2018 Brown Bag Lunch Series kicks off the year with a book discussion of A Bitter Veil with its author, Libby Fischer Hellmann. Ms. Hellmann has written 14 novels, including two female-led mystery series and four stand-alone historical novels. A Bitter Veil (2012) is one of those stand-alones. It tells the story of a young, newly-married American woman who was trapped in Iran during the Iranian Revolution after the overthrow of the Shah. Anyone interested in immigration issues will surely love this book. The story is smart, suspenseful, and one you won't want to put down. Ms. Hellmann will join our discussion via Skype.

The program will be held on January 24 at 12:15 in our newly renovated Programming Room.  Reservations are required.  The first 10 people to register for the program will receive a complimentary AUTOGRAPHED copy of A Bitter Veil.
