Summary
Anneliese and her little brother Peter have been forever changed by the war that took their father's life. One day, while wandering the ruined streets of Munich in search of food, they stumble upon a book exhibit. The great hall is filled with more books than Anneliese can count! Here, Anneliese and Peter meet the lady with the books, who will have a greater impact on their lives than they could ever imagine.The Lady with the Books is based on the true story of Jella Lepman, founder of the International Board on Books for Young people (IBBY) and the International Youth Library. In 1946, her exhibit of children's books from around the world travelled throughout Germany to show "bridges of understanding" between countries. Jella believed that these books would help German children feel connected to others around the world and that they were the best hope of preventing another war
