Mosaic Culture Hub Presents “Meet the Author – Linda Nissen Samuels”

Wednesday February 22

Join us at 12.30 for a light lunch before a presentation about Jack Nissenthall by his daughter, Linda.

Author and Artist, Linda Nissen Samuels, divides her time between writing and painting. Her first book for adults, published by Chiselbury in 2022, is a biography of a war hero, her father, Jack Nissenthall.

The Man Under the Radar is a fascinating account of one man’s life using his own writings and those of his daughter. The publishing of the book has been followed by an exhibition at the Battle of Britain Bunker Visitor Centre in Uxbridge featuring Jack Nissenthall and commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid.

It tells the story of Jack Nissenthall, a Radar expert who volunteered for a potential suicide mission to discover the secrets of German radar as a key part of the Dieppe Raid, in August 1942. The book is available from Chiselbury, Waterstones and Amazon.

‘’Nissenthall knew so much about Allied radar technology that he was accompanied by 10 bodyguards – if capture appeared likely, the Canadian soldiers orders were to kill him.’’

Please let us know if you are joining us for catering purposes and if you require a supervised option, please alert us in advance.

There will be a £5 charge, via our website or through the Mosaic office, up to Thursday 17th February.  From 18th February and on the door, the charge will be £7.
