[ARCHIVED] Branigan Library to Host Author Sarah McCoy

Sarah McCoy

The Readers of the Purple Sage Book Club, at Thomas Branigan Memorial Library, invites residents to a presentation by award-winning novelist Sarah McCoy from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, June 17, 2021 via Zoom.

Ms. McCoy will discuss her book, The Baker’s Daughter, a novel about the intertwining of two women’s lives. In 1945, Elsie Schmidt was a naive teenager protected from the worst of the terror and desperation overtaking Germany by a high-ranking Nazi who wishes to marry her.

An escaped Jewish boy arrives on Elsie’s doorstep on Christmas Eve. Sixty years later, in El Paso, Texas, Reba Adams is trying to file a feel-good Christmas piece for the local magazine.

She interviews the owner of Elsie’s German Bakery. Reba finds herself returning to the bakery repeatedly to uncover a story that resonates with her turbulent past.

Email for the Zoom invitation.
