Spain under Franco in 1957 and Paris during the Nazi occupation set the scene for young Americans who find themselves faced with the dark shadow of fascism in two new historical novels by bestselling authors. Ruta Sepetys (Fountains of Silence) and Leila Meacham (Dragonfly) explore what it’s like to come of age in the midst of danger, intrigue and political violence. Please Note: Unfortunately, Leila Meacham is no longer able to attend the Festival. This will be a conversation with Ruta Sepetys.
