Home > Events > Learn > Women of WHC Present: Lisa Scottoline
The Women of WHC are thrilled to welcome best-selling author Lisa Scottoline to discuss her new book, Eternal with us over Zoom!
About the Book:
Eternal is the culmination of a lifetime of #1 bestseller, Lisa Scottoline’s work. She has been researching the Italian Holocaust since her undergraduate days when she took an intimate year-long seminar at the University of Pennsylvania led by Philip Roth called “The Literature of the Holocaust.” She was inspired to write about Fascism and the Holocaust in Italy someday especially as the Italian Holocaust remains untold in popular fiction.
Elisabetta, Marco, and Sandro grow up as the best of friends despite their differences. Elisabetta dreams of becoming a novelist; Marco the brash and athletic son in a family of professional cyclists; and Sandro a kind-hearted Jewish mathematics prodigy. Their friendship blossoms to love, with both Sandro and Marco hoping to win Elisabetta’s heart.
As antisemitism takes legal root and World War II erupts, they realize Mussolini was only the beginning. The Nazis invade Rome, and with their occupation come new atrocities against the city’s Jews, culminating in a final, horrific betrayal. Eternal is a heartbreaking story of both the best and the worst that the world has to offer.
