Stephen Maitland-Lewis will talk about his award-winning book at Queens College on Sunday.

Stephen Maitland-Lewis, author of the award-winning book “Emeralds Never Fade” will speak at Queens College, on April 21 at 4 p.m.

Lewis has spent two years touring with the book, which tells the story of two young men living during the Holocaust.

“It’s a great honor to be invited,” he said. “I hope that I’m going to be a fantastic speaker.”

Lewis is a member of the Board of Trustees for the college’s Louis Armstrong Museum. He said he was close friends with Armstrong and will begin the event by talking about that friendship.
