Recently, the book club at Arcare Nirvana finished reading the incredible true story of “The Tattooist of Auschwitz”. This week, the book club received a visit from a special guest speaker – the author of the novel!
Heather Morris published the #1 New York Times Bestseller at the beginning of last year. The story is based on interviews that Heather Morris conducted with Melbourne-based Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist, Ludwig Sokolov.
Heather spent the afternoon speaking to clients at Nirvana about the extraordinary events that led her to writing the factual story of the tattooist, and discussing stories inside of the novel. Alongside this, Heather also discussed the aftermath of writing and publishing the book.
Clients and staff were very fascinated to hear about Heather’s heartfelt experiences in writing the novel and excited to find out about what her next project is.
At the end of her talk, Heather agreed to return back and chat with us about her next book and further travels.
