About this Event

Oxford Publishing Society (OPuS) presents:

An evening with Bart van Es

Author of 2018 Costa Book of the Year, The Cut Out Girl

‘After the war, the life that these hideaways had brought to the families was missing. Each girl had been imagined as a daughter or a sister only to vanish without so much as a farewell. They could not have known it, but these cut out girls left holes behind.’

In this talk, Professor Bart van Es will will describe the evolution of his prize-winning book from its first conception, including his conversations with publishers and the book trade.

The Cut Out Girl is the extraordinary true story of a young Jewish girl in Holland during World War II, who hides from the Nazis in the homes of an underground network of foster families, one of them the author's grandparents.
