Jennifer Chiaverini, author of Resistance Women, will be at Cream & Amber for an author reading on Sunday, July 28th. Join us as Jennifer reads from her novel and does Q and A.

About Resistance Women: American-born Mildred Fish Harnack is well known throughout modern Germany, where streets and schools have been named after her. A literary scholar and anti-Nazi resistance fighter, Mildred was the only American woman whose execution during World War II was personally ordered by Adolf Hitler. Yet here in her native country, Mildred’s story is largely unknown.

Jennifer Chiaverini, the New York Times bestselling author of Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker, brings Mildred to life in Resistance Women, an enthralling historical saga that recreates the danger, romance, and sacrifice of this era. The novel, inspired by a true story, is the tale of a courageous, passionate American and the circle of women who waged a clandestine battle against Hitler in Nazi Berlin.

Copies of Resistance Women are available now at Cream & Amber.

Jennifer Chiaverini is the New York Times bestselling author of several acclaimed historical novels and the beloved Elm Creek Quilts series. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the University of Chicago, she lives with her husband and two sons in Madison, Wisconsin. Find out more about her at
