Set in early 20th century Paris, the novel tells the story of Sylvia Beach, owner of the famous Shakespeare and Company bookshop, and her dramatic journey to bring one of the most important books of the 20th century to the world. Whitney Scharer, author of The Age of Light, will lead the conversation.
