The author of a memoir about an American childhood spent in wartime Germany will visit Seymour Library at 1 p.m. Thursday for a talk and book signing. Marlies Adams DiFante, who now lives in
Rochester, is author of “Queen of the Bremen.” DiFante’s family traveled to Germany in 1939 for what was expected to be a three-month visit to see family. But as World War II began, they were not permitted to leave the country and instead spent seven years under Nazi control. Her story offers an unusual perspective on life inside Germany during the war and tells a story of faith and determination. The library owns multiple copies of the book, and books will be available for sale at the event. No registration is needed.
