It’s with some pride that we report that Last Light author Erika Dreifus will be donating a portion of the proceeds of her¬†forthcoming collection, Quiet Americans, to The Blue Card, an organization that provides financial assistance to survivors of the Nazi persecution and their families in the United States.

Much of the inspiration for the stories in Erika’s book comes from the experiences of her paternal grandparents, who fled from Nazi Germany to the U.S.A., and Erika has explained her decision to have her book sales support The Blue Card on her own blog .

We’re proud to know you, Erika.
