Author Monika Schröder at The Red Balloon Bookshop — Friday, October 28, 2011


On Friday at 7:00 p.m., author Monika Schröder will be at The Red Balloon Bookshop with her book, My Brother’s Shadow.  The sorrow and the pity of World War I haunt every page of this unsparing coming-of-age story set in Berlin during the war’s final days. Monika Schröder skillfully sketches in the fractured political background of a disintegrating Imperial Germany without missing a beat in her fast-paced, first-person narrative as 16-year-old Moritz copes with his family’s misfortunes, finds his calling, and discovers love.
