On Tuesday, April 2 at 7pm, Falmouth Jewish Congregation invites everyone to a free, virtual Jewish Book Council author talk by Christopher C. Gorham, author of The Confidante: The Untold Story of the Woman Who Helped Win WWII and Shape Modern America. This talk is free and open to the public, but requires advance registration for Zoom. Local independent bookshop Eight Cousins is handling book sales and signing.

From the comfort of your home, join Christopher C. Gorham discuss The Confidante, welcomed by Nigel Hamilton as an “authoritative new biography [that] will put Anna Rosenberg where she belongs: among the most outstanding yet unsung women of the 20th century.” From modest immigrant beginnings, Anna Rosenberg rose to the highest levels of American power and stayed there, shaping national policies in areas dominated by men: business, the military, and politics. Her impact on the nation, vital to victory and postwar prosperity, continues to this day. This deeply researched book is the first to fully recognize Anna Rosenberg’s remarkable life and contributions to America’s success during and after World War II. It reveals her uncommon skills as a leader, her abilities to observe and connect, and her profound influence in shaping and implementing many of the nation’s most significant public policies.

Fans of Hidden Figures, Eleanor: A Life, Fly Girls, A Woman of No Importance, and Three Ordinary Girls will appreciate The Confidante’s meticulous research, its rich storytelling, and the extraordinary exploits of a subject at the heart of so many major events. Anna Rosenberg, first recipient of the Medal of Freedom, deserves to take her rightful place in the history books as one of America’s most important and influential women. Join Christopher C. Gorham and read his book to learn more about the person whom Life Magazine called “far and away the most important woman in the American government, and perhaps the most important official female in the world.”

The next event in the series is a free, virtual talk for Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) on Monday, May 6 at 1pm by Nina Siegal on The Diary Keepers, a riveting look at the story of World War II and the Holocaust through the diaries of Dutch citizens.
