Writers Read with Peter Clenott

Local author Peter Clenott will read from his newest mystery novel, The Unwanted. Hana Ziegler is a fourteen-year-old child prodigy. But on September 1, 1939, as Hitler invades Poland and World War II begins, she is being taken to the Hollenschloss Institute to be euthanized. Silke Hartenstein is a sixteen-year-old beauty who has graced the covers of German magazines as the blonde, blue-eyed female Aryan prototype. She is a member of the Bund Deutsch Madel, but she has also laughed in the face of German Propaganda Minister Goebbels. In May of 1947, murder is committed. The victims are an American who is helping former Nazis escape judgment and a fleeing German SS officer. While other Nazi leaders are being prosecuted, the eyes of the American military judicial system fall on Hana. For THE UNWANTED, Fatherland, Motherland, Holy Land ultimately mean nothing. For 'Hana the unwanted' and 'Silke the noble', the only true homeland is family.   Grab brunch at one of downtown Lowell's fabulous restaurants and then come to the bookstore to hear from this amazing book.
