Hubert am Stammtisch

Hubert “Regulars’ Table.”

Hubert sits at a typical German “Stammtische” for lunch.  In Gretel’s Cross, Wilhelm, Max and their buddies would have argued, smoked, told whoppers, gossiped, and drank lots of beer.  This typical group of friends would have also sought answers for the political and economic turmoil that struck Überauen and the world between 1914 and 1945.

As a Benefit for “The Friends of St. James” we had a very successful book launch for Gretel’s Cross on Saturday,  March 19, 2016 at St. James Episcopal Church in Ormond Beach, Fl.  Here are a few photographs of the event.
