    CAMDEN — On Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 6:30 p.m., the Camden Public Library will host Maine author Rachael Cerrotti for a presentation of her book We Share the Same Sky: A Memoir of Memory & Migration. The book documents a granddaughter’s decade-long journey to weave together the thin threads of her family history.

    Cerrotti’s talk will be held in the library’s Picker Room to a limited in-person audience and simultaneously broadcast on Zoom. To reserve a seat to attend in-person, email jpierce@librarycamden.org.

    Cerrrotti’s project is an intergenerational diary of love, loss, and the will to move forward in the face of uncertainty. For over a decade, Cerrotti has been retracing her grandmother’s Holocaust survival story and documenting the echoes of WWII. In the fall of 2019, she released her podcast, titled We Share the Same Sky, about this story. The podcast is now being taught in classrooms worldwide, according to the Library, in a news release.

    We Share the Same Sky is Cerrotti’s first book. It won a Maine Literary Award, received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly, and was listed as a “best book of the month” by Apple Books.

    Rachael Cerrotti is an author, educator, and documentary storyteller as well as the inaugural Storyteller in Residence for USC Shoah Foundation. She currently produces and hosts ‘The Memory Generation’ podcast.

    This program is part of the Camden Public Library’s “Discover History Month” series, presented annually in October and generously sponsored by The Smiling Cow. More information about other programs in the series can be found at librarycamden.org.
