Buxton Books has invited author, journalist, and historian Peter Golden to speak at a luncheon at Congress in Mt. Pleasant on Friday, April 27th at noon. Golden will discuss his new novel, Nothing is Forgotten, and the Cold War, the Holocaust, and how they impact the present, particularly pertaining to our relationship with Russia.
In addition to his work as an author, Goldne has interviewed Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and George H.W. Bush; Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and Alexander Haig; Israeli Prime Ministers Rabin, Peres, and Shamir; and Soviet President Gorbachev.
Golden's novel "mines the past of the Cold War and Holocaust to illuminate the present, captivating readers through twists and turns in multiple locations across continents to solve the mystery of a grandmother’s murder in South Orange, New Jersey." It's based on actual events and research conducted by the author. The story begins in 1965 when Michael Daniel’s grandmother Emma Dainov, a lovely woman who dispenses treats to children in her candy store, is murdered. Learning his grandmother had a hidden past that might have motivated her killing, Michael begins a quest, starting in Munich.
