Come learn about a novel based on the true story of a gifted Holocaust survivor and chemist. In the cutthroat, highly politicized world of cancer research, an Italian Jewish survivor made one of the key discoveries in twentieth-century medicine, only to be ignored until decades after his death. I will speak about the process of turning an important life story into novelistic art.
