Wed, February 7, 2018 6:30 P.M.
Philadelphia City Institute

Cost: FREE

Author Susan Meissner will present her new book As Bright as Heaven, a sweeping historical novel about one American family’s fight to survive when the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic hits Philadelphia. Susan Meissner is the award-winning author of A Fall of Marigolds, Secrets of a Charmed Life, Stars over Sunset Boulevard, and A Bridge Across the Ocean among other novels.

This program will be held in the meeting room on the library’s lower level and we regret there is no elevator.
