After a lengthy hiatus, we’re delighted to announce a return to our literary lunches with Heather Morris: author of the 8-million copy global bestselling phenomenon The Tattooist of Auschwitz.
Come and join Heather for a two course lunch, free glass of wine, and a signed copy of her latest book – Three Sisters, based on the incredible true story of the Meller sisters, as told to Heather.
When they are little girls, Cibi, Magda and Livia make a promise to their father – that they will stay together, no matter what. Years later, at just 15, Livia is ordered to Auschwitz by the Nazis. Cibi, only 19 herself, remembers their promise and follows Livia, determined to protect her sister, or die with her. Together, they fight to survive through unimaginable cruelty and hardship.
Magda, only 17, stays with her mother and grandfather, hiding out in a neighbour’s attic or in the forest when the Nazi militia come to round up friends, neighbours and family. She escapes for a time, but eventually she too is captured and transported to the death camp.
In Auschwitz-Birkenau the three sisters are reunited and, remembering their father, they make a new promise, this time to each other: That they will survive.
Rich in vivid detail, and beautifully told, Three Sisters will break your heart, but leave you amazed and uplifted by the courage and fierce love of three sisters, whose promise to each other kept them alive.
Livia, the last remaining sister, lives in Israel today, surrounded by friends and family. She, along with her sister Magda, (who passed away May 2022) chose Heather Morris to tell their story in her novel Three Sisters, a beautiful story of hope in the hardest of times and of finding love after loss.
Tickets available from shop (£32.50) including signed book, two-course lunch and glass of wine. Online tickets will incur a booking fee.
