Join Guardian columnist and feature writer Hadley Freeman, as she talks to Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland about her new book, House of Glass: The Story and Secrets of a Twentieth-Century Jewish Family.

When Freeman discovered a shoebox filled with her French grandmother’s belongings, it started a decade-long quest to find out their significance and to dig deep into the extraordinary life of her grandmother and her siblings. The search takes Hadley from Picasso’s archives in Paris to a secret room in a farmhouse in Auvergne, from Long Island to Auschwitz.

In House of Glass, Freeman explores the moving journey of the Glass family through love and loss in the 20th century, detailing extraordinary acts of courage and survival that are deeply relevant today. She will be joining us to share this remarkable story.
