Mistress of the Ritz
Melanie Benjamin’s enthralling novel is based on the story of the extraordinary real-life Blanche Auzello, a Jewish-American woman who forged papers to create a new life for herself abroad, and who secretly worked for the Resistance, all while playing hostess to the invading Germans at the legendary Ritz in Paris.
Join us for this compelling presentation of a truly inspiring woman.
Melanie Benjamin is a New York Times bestselling author, whose books include The Girls in the Picture, The Swans of Fifth Avenue, The Aviator’s Wife, The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb, and Alice I Have Been. Benjamin lives in Chicago, where she is at work on her next historical novel.
