In January, our Daytime Open Book Club will read and discuss The Girl with the Leica by Helena Janeczek, translated by Ann Goldstein. Please be aware that the meeting time has changed from 10:30am to 10:45am.

Gerda Taro was a German-Jewish war photographer, anti-fascist activist, artist and innovator who, together with her partner, the Hungarian Endre Friedmann, was one half of the alias Robert Capa, widely considered to be the twentieth century’s greatest war and political photographer. She was killed while documenting the Spanish Civil War and tragically became the first female photojournalist to be killed on a battlefield. The Girl with the Leica is a must-read for fans of historical fiction centered on extraordinary women’s lives.
