Meeting Room A/B (150)

Join us when Kristina McMorris visits to discuss her latest novel, The Ways We Hide.

About the author:

Kristina McMorris is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Sold on a Monday. Her novels have garnered more than twenty national literary awards, and include Letters from Home, Bridge of Scarlet Leaves, The Pieces We Keep, and The Edge of Lost, in addition to novellas featured in A Winter Wonderland and Grand Central. She lives with her husband and two sons in Oregon.

In The Ways We Hide, McMorris returns with a stand-out novel perfect for WWII fiction fans: a story that focuses on one woman who uses her skills for illusion to help Allied prisoners escape from the hands of the enemy, based on incredible true accounts. Main character Fenna Vos is shocked to be called upon by the British intelligence for her skills during WWII, and is soon tasked with creating escape tools to thwart the Germans. But delving deeper into her newfound job—and an unconventional group of inventors—means confronting her own past.

Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
