Join author David R. Gillham as he discusses his novel of a woman struggling through the chaos of Berlin in World War II tonight at the Ivy Bookshop at 7 p.m. The event is part of the Baltimore Fishbowl and Ivy Bookshop series, The Front Table, which features well-regarded authors and books found on the “front table” of the shop.

About the Book:

It is 1943 – the height of the Second World War. With the men away at the front, Berlin has become a city of women.

On the surface, Sigrid Schroder is the model German soldier’s wife: She goes to work every day, does as much with her rations as she can and dutifully cares for her meddling mother-in-law, all the while ignoring the horrific immoralities of the regime.

But behind this facade is an entirely different Sigrid, a woman of passion who dreams of her former Jewish lover, now lost in the chaos of the war. But Sigrid is not the only one with secrets – she soon finds herself caught between what is right and what is wrong, and what falls somewhere in the shadows between the two.

About the Author:

David R. Gillham spent more than a decade in the book business, and now lives with his family in western Massachusetts. City of Women is his first novel.

Join Baltimore Fishbowl and the Ivy Bookshop, 6080 Falls Road, tonight at 7 p.m. For more information, visit the Ivy Bookshop website.
