Ep. 696 - The Assignment: Would YOU defend the Indefensible | Liza Wiemer
11-28-22 Allen Cardoza Interviews Liza Wiemer
Inspired by a real-life incident, Liza Wiemer’s new riveting novel, The Assignment, explores discrimination and antisemitism and reveals their dangerous impact.
Would you defend the indefensible? That's what seniors Logan March and Cade Crawford are asked to do when a favorite teacher instructs a group of students to argue for the Final Solution--the Nazi plan for the genocide of the Jewish people.
Logan and Cade decide they must take a stand, and soon their actions draw the attention of the student body, the administration, and the community at large. But not everyone feels as Logan and Cade do--after all, isn't a school debate just a school debate? It's not long before the situation explodes, and acrimony and anger result.
In an interview you will not want to miss, this new book IS based on true events. The Assignment asks and gives great clarity to the question: What does it take for tolerance, justice, and love to prevail?
