Book Talk: The American Way

May 11, 2023 @ 6:30 pm

Holocaust Museum LA presents “The American Way,” a book talk with authors Bonnie Siegler and Helene Stapinski moderated by entertainment personality and television host Melissa Rivers, Thursday, May 11, at 6:30 p.m. at the museum.
Hailed by booklist as “a beautifully hopeful tale about what it means to live the American dream, how ordinary people can become real-life superheroes, and the serendipitous ways in which strangers impact our lives,” “The American Way” is the thrilling real-life adventure of Siegler’s grandfather and how the head of DC comics rescued his family in Berlin as they fled the Nazis. Famous characters appear throughout the book, including Oscar-winning director Billy Wilder, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio. The New York Times cited “The American Way’s” “gripping, intertwined stories.”

Books will be available for purchase, provided by Chevalier’s Books; and a signing will follow the book talk. To get the book in advance, go to
