Two women, driven to defend France from the Nazis - one, a young British spy and the other, an American collaborating with the underground resistance.

Erika Robuck’s latest novel “Sisters of Night and Fog,” weaves the true stories of these World War II heroines together until they meet in one of the darkest places of the war.

She has several local book launch events this month. Next Thursday, March 10th, you can find her at Park Books and Literacy CoLab in Severna Park. The following Tuesday, March 15th, she’ll be at Politics and Prose in DC. And the morning after that, Wednesday March 16, she’ll be speaking at O’Brien’s Tavern in Annapolis.

Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
