Wednesday, March 21, 2018
6:30pm -7:45pm
Main Branch Olympic Room

Please join author Katrina Shawver as she discusses her nationally-acclaimed biography Henry – A Polish Swimmer’s True Story of Friendship from Auschwitz to America. 

The author writes:  “Told in interview format, Henry [Zguda] relates a life as a champion swimmer and coach, interrupted by 3 years imprisoned in Auschwitz and Buchenwald as a Catholic Polish political prisoner. This bridge to history is told with a pragmatic gallows humor and is supported by extensive research, original documents, and rare photos not seen elsewhere.”

This program promises to be extremely moving and engaging. Books will be available for sale and the author will be signing.  King’s Bookstore will be selling books at the Main Branch.

Parking is free after 4pm at the Main Branch.
