Mait­land to speak Nov. 5 at Den­ton pub­lic li­brary

Times-Record - - News -

DEN­TON — In her mem­oir, “Cross­ing the Bor­ders of Time,” Les­lie Mait­land, for­mer award-win­ning reporter and na­tional correspondent for The New York Times, turned her in­ves­tiga­tive skills to solv­ing a mys­tery in her own fam­ily’s past.

This true story of her mother’s ex­pe­ri­ence as a Holo­caust es­capee, and the for­bid­den ro­mance she left be­hind, en­thralled her. Her book is both a jour­nal­ist’s vivid de­pic­tion of a world at war and a daugh­ter’s pur­suit of a haunt­ing ques­tion: What had be­come of the hand­some French­man whose pic­ture her mother con­tin­ued to trea­sure al­most 50 years after they parted?

Come for a dis­cus­sion, reading and book sign­ing with this Bethesda-based au­thor at 1 p.m. Satur­day, Nov. 5, at the Caro­line County Pub­lic Li­brary’s Cen­tral Li­brary in Den­ton.
