Thurber House Evenings with Authors: Ariel Lawhon – cancelled

April 15, 2020 7:30 pm @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Presented by Thurber House, Evenings with Authors is a series of readings and chats with nationally known authors, followed by a Q&A session, book signing, and a punch and cookies reception.

The Winter/Spring 2020 Evenings with Authors Series is presented by The Ohio State University Libraries.

Ariel Lawhon’s books include Flight of Dreams and I Was Anastasia. Her new book is Code Name Hélène, based on the real-life story of spy Nancy Wake, an astonishing woman who killed a Nazi with her bare hands and became one of the most decorated women in WWII. Code Name Hélène follows interweaving stories of the four code names Nancy used during WWII. As Lucienne Carlier, Nancy smuggles people and documents across the border and earns a nickname from the Gestapo for her ability to evade capture: The White Mouse. With a bounty on her head, Nancy is forced to run and adopt the name Hélène. Finally, she becomes the deadly Madam Andrée and one of the most powerful leaders in the French Resistance.
