Book Club at the Sperber: The Unanswered Letter
Wednesday, 2pm-3pm PDT
A letter that was hidden in an attic for 60 years changed journalist Faris Cassell’s life. Mailed from 1939 Vienna, this desperate plea by a Jewish man remained unanswered. The discovery led Cassell on a life-changing journey that now culminates with the release of her new book, The Unanswered Letter. Join this session to discuss the book and the unexpected journeys it explores.
