April 5 web event: Author reads from new novel about Spanish Civil War

Spain-barricade

Sunday afternoon, April 5, 4 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 1 p.m. Pacific Time

In a live internet simulcast, author Michael Schreiber will read aloud several chapters from his new novel (an unpublished work in progress) about the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s. The fictional work — with episodes of romance and humor, and stirring battle scenes — is based on real events.

The story involves a character, Arthur Rose, a young idealistic worker from Philadelphia who volunteers to fight in Spain in early 1937. He is wounded during a suicidal charge up a hill in Aragon. Much later, in 1953, he is entrusted with a “mission” to return to Spain, now under the Francisco Franco dictatorship. Memories of his adventures during the war, and the guilt that he harbors from those days, come flooding back.

The reading by the author will take about 40 minutes, with time for questions afterward. If you would like to attend, please register on this website, and you will receive a link to the Zoom call. Register here!
