The May selection for the Radio Bookclub is To Die Beautiful, by Boulder author Buzzy Jackson.
The novel is a fictionalized retelling of the true story of Hannie Schaft, a Dutch resistance fighter during World War II. She became known as “the girl with the red hair”.
We first meet Hannie in the novel in 1940 as a shy nineteen-year-old law student living in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands, who becomes an armed member of the Dutch Resistance movement while protecting her friends.

The Radio Bookclub is a collaboration between KGNU and the Boulder Bookstore. Every month, Arsen Kashkashian, head buyer at the Boulder Bookstore, selects a book to inspire listeners to read along together. The author will then join us for a discussion that airs the fourth Thursday of every month at 9am.
