Escaping Hitler Book signing at Maddermarket Theatre, Norwich

I am delighted to have been invited to sign copies of my book Escaping Hitler at the historic Maddermarket Theatre in Norwich on Saturday 19th May on the opening weekend of ‘Kindertransport’ a play by Diane Samuels. Recently Joe Stirling, the subject of this biography of a Kindertransport boy whose destiny was to become Sheriff of Norwich, visited rehearsals and spoke with the cast about this childhood experiences in Nazi Germany.

Signed copies of the book will be available throughout the run (19 – 27 May), although as I am currently completing my next book, I will not be able to attend the theatre every night.  If you live near Norwich and would like to see the play, take a look at the Maddermarket website at maddermarket.co.uk.

Kindertransport by Diane Samuels, Directed by Tony Fullwood

As the clouds of war gather in 1930’s Germany, a desperate mother forces her nine year old daughter onto a train, sending her out of danger and into the arms of strangers.
In peaceful, suburban, 1980’s England, a proud mother prepares to say farewell to her grown-up daughter, as she cuts the ties of childhood to leave the family home.
Then a chance discovery opens an unhealed wound.

I look forward to meeting the cast and the audiences.  Joe’s experiences should certainly complement the text of the play.  This photo shows Joe with the cast. Thanks to the Theatre Manager Rebecca for arranging the book signing.  I am looking forward to it!
