STAFF | September 21, 2016

Meet Deby Eisenberg, a Chicago-based author of a new, multi-layered historical novel set in Lake Geneva, Chicago and Europe, at a program Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lake Geneva Public Library, 918 W. Main St., Lake Geneva.

Protecting Paige is a story revolving around a girl orphaned by a random act of gang violence, her two unlikely saviors and her discover of secret tragedies and startling truths at the core of her identity.

Opening in Chicago in 1962, the novel unfolds during a time of nationwide turmoil and transformation, coinciding with her journey to uncover her family’s hidden past — in Paris and Buchenwald. It captures a young woman’s coming of age and a man’s search for a lost love.
Eisenberg will present a PowerPoint presentation of “ripped from the headlines” venues and events that are encompassed in her novel. She will also share the inspiration and research for a new book.

Eisenberg is known for her moving book club-favorite fiction debut, Pictures of the Past. Protecting Paige won bronze metal fro the 2016 Annual Independent Publishers Books Awards. Eisenberg was a book club leader for over 20 years, and also worked as an English teacher and journalist.

Another presentation in a city that is part of the storyline — this time The Oak Park Library, in Oak Park, Illinois

There was wonderful coverage in the Lake Geneva, Wisconsin press, especially the Walworth County Today and The Lake Geneva Regional News prior to my speaking at The Lake Geneva Public Library.  What a warm reception I received, and what a great way to come full circle to one of the venues where I created my characters!
