Livestreamed Facebook event from 10 December 2020

In this video Heather Mossis discusses her books, the writing process and answers questions from viewers.

In 2003, Heather was introduced to an elderly gentleman who "might just have a story worth telling." The day she met Lale Sokolov changed both their lives. Their friendship grew and Lale embarked on a journey of self-scrutiny, entrusting the innermost details of his life during the Holocaust to her. Heather originally wrote Lale’s story as a screenplay --- which ranked high in international competitions --- before reshaping it into her debut novel, THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZ.
