The Pendulum

Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 7:30 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

A Granddaughter's search for her family's forbidden Nazi past.

This powerful memoir traces Brazilian-born American Julie Lindahl’s journey to uncover her grandparents’ role in WWII as she is driven to understand why they became members of Hitler’s elite, the SS. Out of the unbearable heart of the story—the unclaimed guilt that devours a family through generations—emerges an unflinching will to learn the truth.


Ms. Lindahl will be reading from, speaking about and having a Q & A session about the process of writing her new book, The Pendulum.


Julie Lindahl is an author and educator living in Sweden. She writes and speaks widely about her experiences, is a contributor to WBUR Cognoscenti (Boston Public Radio) and has been featured on National Public Radio.


Julie holds a BA from Wellesley College, an MPhil in International Relations from Oxford University and was a Fulbright Scholar in Frankfurt, Germany.


Raised in ten countries on three continents, she has worked globally as a consultant in the developing world. She is the founder of Stories for Society, a non-profit organization for renewing the art of story-making among youth for social transformation.


The Radio Station, WBUR, won the 2018 Edward R. Murrow award for excellence in innovation and the 2018 Associated Press Media Editor’s Award for innovation in storytelling based on a program series featuring Lindahl's story.


Copies of the book will be available at the event.
