Jamie recommends "Annie's Ghosts"

Annie's ghosts : a journey into a family secret

Annie's Ghosts takes place in Detroit as the author attempts to track down the long-lost aunt he never knew he had. I found this an interesting nonfiction story, not only for the familiarity of the areas discussed in the book, but also the topic of physically or mentally challenged people and how they were handled in early 20th century. In addition, the book also dealt with information about World War II and the exodus of Jewish citizens from Eastern Europe.

If you liked this book and want to discuss it, it will be the subject of the Wine and Proses book discussion on August 1 at Filipo Marc Winery. Register to attend to discuss the book with us!
