The St. Louis County Library Foundation, HEC Media, the Favorite Author Series, and Left Bank Books presents acclaimed novelist, Peter Blauner, author of “Picture in the Sand.” 


Edgar Award-winning suspense author Peter Blauner presents a sweeping saga told through a grandfather's passionate letters to his grandson. When Ali Hassan's grandson Alex becomes involved with religious extremists, he offers him a plea.  If Alex will stay in touch, Ali will share a secret story of his own life that he’s kept hidden from his family. It's the tale of his heartbreaking past rooted in Hollywood and the post-revolutionary Egypt of the 1950s, when young Ali was a movie fanatic who attained a dream job working with  Cecil B. DeMille on the set of the epic film, "The Ten Commandments." But Ali’s vision of a golden future in Hollywood gets upended when he is unwittingly caught up in a web of politics and espionage.
