This book discussion is exclusive to Wisconsin teachers.
In October, Wisconsin educators were invited to attend a virtual lecture with New York Times bestselling author, Rebecca Donner, who discussed her most recent book, All the Frequent Troubles of our Days. The event was introduced and moderated by Professor Emeritus Marc Silberman. More information can be found here.
All the Frequent Troubles of Our Days is a true story about the life and death of Mildred Harnack. Harnack was an American leader of one of the largest underground resistance groups in Germany who was later executed on Hitler’s direct order. In 1986, the Wisconsin State Legislature voted to designate September 16 as Mildred Fish-Harnack day. During this virtual and casual book discussion, teachers of all grade levels will be able to explore the themes of the book and share how they plan to use information from the book in the classroom.
