Barbara Corrado Pope: Literary Salon in Berkeley 9/15

Join Mystery Readers International in Berkeley (CA) on September 15 at 2 p.m. for an afternoon with critically acclaimed author  Barbara Corrado Pope. She is the author of The Blood of Lorraine and Cezanne's Quarry. 

Barbara Corrado Pope has a PhD in the Social and Intellectual History of Europe from Columbia and has taught history and women's studies in Hungary, Tuscany, the University of New Mexico and Harvard Divinity School. Her longest teaching stint was at the University of Oregon where she was the founding director of Women's Studies.

Publishers Weekly gave The Blood of Lorraine a starred review: "Pope improves on her 2008 debut, CĂ©zanne's Quarry, which also featured magistrate Bernard Martin, in this fascinating look at the rise of anti-Semitism in France after the arrest of Capt. Alfred Dreyfus for treason in 1894... Pope, a historian, gives us a complex lead and with great skill makes the anti-Semitic atmosphere of the times both palpable and tragically prophetic."

All welcome. Please RSVP for Directions
