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.
