The Peninsula Parlour presents Emmy-nominated television writer / producer, and author April Smith, discussing A Star for Mrs. Blake, in conversation with Lisen Stromberg. The United States Congress in 1929 passed legislation to fund travel for
mothers of the fallen soldiers of World War I to visit their sons'
graves in France. Over the next three years, 6,693 Gold Star Mothers
made the trip. In this emotionally charged, brilliantly realized novel,
April Smith breathes life into a unique moment in American history,
imagining the experience of five of these women. 5% of all sales made during this event will be donated to Abilities United.
