David Gillham

When: Thu., May 16, 7 p.m. 2013

At the height of World War II, Berlin -- like many war-torn cities in the world -- had become a city of women. David Gillham imagines that world in his 2012 book City of Women, in which protagonist Sigrid enters the city's underground network for hiding Jews after falling in love with a Jewish black marketer. As she gets more and more entwined in the spidery and paranoid network of neighborhood secrets, Sigrid also finds her love life similarly entangled. Join Gillham on Thursday, May 16, as he reads from his historical fiction page-turner at A Great Good Place for Books (6120 LaSalle Ave., Oakland). 7 p.m., free.
