I’ll be reading from my work in progress, The Double Crossing, historical fiction for ages ten to fourteen. The story tells of a Jewish boy and girl escaping HItler’s Germany in 1939. They board the ship St. Louis, headed for Cuba, where they become friends, encounter and foil a spy plot, and ultimately are not allowed to disembark in Cuba, the U.S., or Canada. Historically, all but a few of the over 900 passengers on the St. Louis were sent back to Europe. Approximately 250 later died in concentration camps.
