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  https://bookshop.org/p/books/the-american-way-a-true-story-of-nazi-escape-superman-and-marilyn-monroe-bonnie-siegler/18751580?ean=9781982171667.
