Book Discussion: Family Declassified by Katherine Fennelly

Wednesday, Feb 28 at 2:00
Book Discsussion 
Family Declassified
by Katherine Fennelly

In 1974 Francis abandoned his family and fled to Mexico for two decades where he reinvented himself as a children’s book author, an architect, and a gourmand.

Until his death at age 93, he never spoke of his Jewish ancestry, his work as a spy, or the murder of his sister and nephew at the hands of Hungarian Fascists. 

A full description of the book, order information, reviews, photos, and even some recipes are on her web page

Katherine is a retired academic whose work on immigration policy and public health has taken her to many of the countries where her late grandfather lived out his adventures.
When not tracking down classified documents and delving into family history, she volunteers for refugee service organizations, serves as a Spanish-English interpreter, and enjoys biking in Prospect Park and spending time with her daughters and granddaughters who live nearby.
