  1. I cannot wait to read Elizabeth Wein’s book. She grew up and summered near where I live in Pennsylvania and still returns to her family cottage most summers. She often does an author presentation at the local library and Chatauqua and a few years ago was talking about the research she was doing about this book. I am so happy to see it has been published!
