Author Talk: John Burnham Schwartz, ‘The Red Daughter’

August 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm

Best selling author John Burnham Schwartz offers a personal story in his novel The Red Daughter about Joseph Stalin’s daughter Svetlana Alliluyeva who comes to America in 1967. In the book, Peter Horvath, a young lawyer, escorts Svetlana to America at the behest of the CIA.
In real life that lawyer was John Burnham Schwartz’s father. Drawing upon private papers and years of extensive research, Schwartz imaginatively re-creates the story of an extraordinary, troubled woman’s search for a new life and a place to belong, in the powerful, evocative prose that has made him an acclaimed author of literary and historical fiction.
John Burnham Schwartz is the bestselling author of the novels Northwest Corner, The Commoner, and Reservation Road. His books have been translated into 20 languages, and John has written for film and television extensively. He is also the Literary Director of the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference.
