Author Spotlight!

Festival Staff / September 12, 2019

New York Times best-selling author Meg Waite Clayton’s seventh novel, "The Last Train to London," is based on the true story of the Kindertransport rescue of 10,000 children from Nazi-occupied Europe—and one brave woman who helped them escape. Her prior novels include the Langum-Prize honored "The Race for Paris," the number one Amazon fiction bestseller "Beautiful Exiles" and "The Wednesday Sisters," one of Entertainment Weekly's 25 Essential Best Friend Novels of all time.

A graduate of the University of Michigan and its law school, she has also written for the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, Forbes, Runner's World and public radio, often on the subject of the particular challenges women face.

Do you want to get some of your festival reading in early? Her new book is available now! It was released by Harper last week.
