Marianne Clemens -- Book LaunchMonday Nov 14 2011 7:30 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Travel Alcove
Launch of Medley: A collection of short stories.
Marianne Clemens grew up in Germany and experienced World War II as a child, an experience recounted in her first book A Childhood Lost in War: Growing Up Under Nazi Rule. That book ends with her arrival in Manitoba as a German immigrant with her Dutch friend Louise Wynberg in 1957. The story of Marianne and Louise's partnership was celebrated in her second work, A Beautiful Life: A Journey of Love & Rebirth.
Heart-warming and sometimes bittersweet, memories from the past seventy plus years of Marianne Clemens' life are presented here as series of short stories in her latest autobiographical work, Medley.
