Author Talk: Jennifer Robson – After the War is Over

At the Wilton Library

The international bestselling author of Somewhere in France returns with her sweeping second novel - a tale of class, love, and freedom - in which a young woman must find her place in a world forever changed. In the follow-up to her much-praised debut, Jennifer Robson brings readers back into the vivid world of Charlotte and Lilly; her exceptional writing and serious knowledge of the time period creates a very real landscape of post-WWI Britain while also weaving in unforgettable characters and a heartwarming love story. Jennifer Robson is the USA Today and #1 Toronto Globe & Mail bestselling author of Somewhere in France. She holds a doctorate in British economic and social history from Saint Antony's College, University of Oxford, where she was a Commonwealth Scholar and an SSHRC Doctoral Fellow. She lives in Toronto, Canada, with her husband and young children. Q& A and book signing will follow the talk. No charge. Registration highly recommended
