Dutch Girl: Audrey Hepburn and World War II
By Robert Matzen with a foreword by Luca Dotti
While the Tony and Oscar winner’s life in Hollywood and as a goodwill ambassador have been pored over in detail, little has been shared about Hepburn’s life in the Netherlands under Nazi occupation. Using archives, personal interviews, photos, and diaries, Matzen uncovers the story of a young artist coming of age during the darkest period in modern history while contributing to the Dutch resistance. The book is available now in Kindle and hardcover formats and will be released in paperback May 12.
The Summer Set
By Aimme Agresti
Movie star Charlie Sutton finds herself almost 40 and frankly exhausted. Having depleted her share of goodwill in Hollywood, she retreats to a theatre in the Berkshires to rekindle her love of performing and possibly a romance with an old flame. But then her arch rival shows up and things go awry in this comedy of manners set at a theatre company that sounds remarkably similar to the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Available May 12.
