Published: Apr 16 2012 12:00AM

Gilda Haber, professor of sociology at The University of Maryland, will read and sign copies of her new memoir, Cockney Girl, on Thursday, April 19, at 7 p.m. in the Theatre Arts Arena. Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome.

This event is co-sponsored by the Paul Peck Humanities Institute and the Women's Studies Program.


To read the first chapter of Cockney Girl, go to http://www.gildahaber.com, and click on "Manuscripts Completed."


About the book: A British-Jewish child aged 5-16 growing up in tumultuous pre-war and wartime England. Living contemporaneously with Anne Frank, and like her, keeping a wartime diary, she is/was the girl that Anne Frank might have been had she lived.

"Thank God, 20 miles of British Channel and the Yanks coming to help the British saved us from Nazi invasion. 'If the Nazis invade, don't say you are Jewish. Go and live with gentiles,' Mummy told me. At that time, I didn't understand, we children were protected from such real adult fears."


A press release is attached.

For more information, please contact Prof. Genevieve Carminati at genevieve.carminati@montgomerycollege.edu or call 240-567-7446.
