Lisa Paul’s book, Swimming in the Daylight, has been a popular choice among book clubs across the country this year. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the story that inspired the book on Tuesday, Oct. 16, as Paul presents at Moraine Park Technical College’s Beaver Dam campus.
Paul, a Beaver Dam native, will share her story at 11:30 a.m. in the College’s commons area.
Set in the years just before the collapse of the Soviet Union, Swimming in the Daylight is the story of the improbable friendship between Paul, a young college student strong in her Catholic faith, and Inna Kitrosskaya Meiman, an internationally known Soviet Jew whose own government forbid her from receiving medical treatment abroad.
As both women hold tight to the strength of their friendship, Paul takes dramatic action to help Inna, and never gives up hope for her freedom. This moving account will inspire new generations to fight for the causes in which they believe.
Everyone is invited to attend Paul’s presentation, and there is no cost to attend. Visit morainepark.edu/calendar for more information. Paul’s presentation is sponsored by the Beaver Dam Multicultural Club and the Student Senate.
