The Czech edition of HENRY: A Polish Swimmer’s True Story of Friendship from Auschwitz to America is here! I found out just after I received a copy of the Polish edition. I waited to announce it until I got my own copy in my hands. The book is gorgeous, the fanciest one yet. It is a hardcover, with dust jacket,in a slightly smaller size. The red letters HENRY on the cover are embossed. Yes, I am now published in three languages, in three countries. Help me raise a toast to Henry and Nancy Zguda. Cheers! Na zdrowie!
If you happen to know anyone who speaks Czech, they can go to either www. knizniklub.cz, www.booktook.cz. to order their copy. Google Translate is a wonderful thing for English speakers. I wonder if there is a book tour to Prague and Poland in the future. Heck, a woman can dream, right? Note – for the Czech version I am Katrina Shawverová.
Last appearance of 2019: December 4, 6:30 pm, Chandler Sunset Library (AZ)
If you live in the Phoenix metro area, I am speaking next week on Wednesday December 4, 6:00 pm, at the Chandler Sunset Library.
I am hoping for good attendance. This is actually a “second chance” talk. I was scheduled last Spring five months in advance, did a ton of advertising, as did the library and only five people showed up in a room set up for more than 60. Why? Perhaps because Anne Frank’s stepsister spoke to a sold-out crowd of more than 2,000 people at the nearby Chandler Center for the Arts. The event was scheduled after the library and I confirmed a date and time. The only other time I had such a poor turnout was the night of the Stormy Daniels interview on 60 Minutes.
So, I now joke that I’m good, but I can’t compete with a porn star, and I can’t compete with Anne Frank. 😉
