Novelist Pam Jenoff served as Vice Consul for the US State Department in Krakow, Poland and is an expert on Poland and the Holocaust. On the morning of Sunday, February 28, Pam Jenoff speaks at Congregation B’nai Israel in Rumson about the role her State Department experiences played in shaping many of her novels.
Jenoff’s internationally best-selling debut novel The Kommandant’s Girl was based on actual events and was cited by Publisher’s weekly for its “luminous simplicity….”and hailed as “a breathtaking debut. “ This poignant Holocaust story – a suspenseful “page-turner” – is on the reading list of several area Book Clubs. Jenoff’s talk will be followed by book sales and author signings.
Jenoff received degrees from George Washington University, Oxford University and The University of Pennsylvania Law School. She lives in New Jersey and currently teaches law at Rutgers-Camden. She is the author of eight novels as well as scholarly publications on the Holocaust.
