Elizabeth Wein, author of The Enigma Game, in conversation with Carole Barrowman- a Boswell virtual event
Join Boswell for special Thrillwaukee/YA, Boswell! event for Elizabeth Wein, author of Code Name Verity, Edgar winner in the Young Adult category as well as a Printz Honor Book. Her new novel is The Enigma Game, featuring beloved characters from Code Name Verity and The Pearl Thief.

It's 1940 and 15-year-old Louisa Adair wants to fight back, make a difference, anything to escape the Blitz and the ghosts of her parents, killed by enemy action, so she accepts a position caring for an elderly German woman in a small Scottish village. Louisa befriends a volunteer ambulance driver and a flight squadron leader, and falls into an unparalleled discovery that could lead to a prized Enigma machine that can break enemy code. Their finding could turn the tide of war, but will also put them in the crosshairs of the enemy, but first they have to break the puzzle.

For this event, Wein will be in conversation with novelist, critic, and Alverno College Professor of English and Director of Creative Studies in Writing Carole E. Barrowman.
