Brubeck Room

Event Details

Please join us on Monday, June 10 at 7 p.m. for an Author Talk with Lisa Barr about her new historical saga The Goddess of Warsaw, a riveting tale spanning six decades, taking readers from Warsaw to Hollywood following a legendary screen actress with a dark secret about her life in the Warsaw Ghetto. It's an enthralling story full of deception, lust, revenge, betrayal, and sacrifice. 

Drawing from extensive research, family history and inspiration as the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, a desire to tell stories about fierce women, and a fascination with the role of the arts in wartime society, Lisa Barr delivers a brilliant page-turner of one of history's most heroic uprisings and an actress whose personal war never ends. The Goddess of Warsaw can be best described as historically important, narratively gripping, and eternally relevant.

"Utterly gripping, The Goddess of Warsaw is a transformative and immersive story so powerful and captivating that I could not put it down. Truly one of the best books I've read." - Liv Constantine, bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish.

Lisa Barr is The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of three historical thrillers, including 2022's Woman on Fire. Selected for numerous book clubs; garnering stellar praise including a starred Publishers Weekly review; and published in nearly 10 languages, the novel was also optioned for film by actress Sharon Stone who is set to produce and star in the adaptation. In addition, Lisa has served as an editor for The Jerusalem Post, managing editor of Today's Chicago Woman, and managing editor of Moment magazine among others.  She's been featured on Good Morning America and Today for her work as an author, journalist, and blogger.

Elm Street Books will be selling copies of The Goddess of Warsaw which Lisa will sign after her talk. A portion of the proceeds goes to Wilton Library.
