Genealogy of a Murder: Four Generations, Three Families, One Fateful Night by Lisa Belkin

Tuesday, March 6 at 7:00 pm in person
Lisa Belkin will discuss her book Genealogy of a Murder: Four Generations, Three Families, One Fateful Night, a multigenerational tale of three families whose paths collide one summer night in 1960 with the murder of a police officer. Belkin examines the coincidences and choices that led these immigrant families to that fateful night. The result is a brilliantly researched, narratively ingenious story, which illuminates how we shape history even as we are shaped by it.

Street Corner Dreams by Florence Kraut

Wednesday, April 10 at 7:00 pm in person
Florence Kraut will discuss her book Street Corner Dreams. Just before WWI, Golda comes to America yearning for independence, but she tosses aside her dreams of freedom and marries her widowed brother-in-law after her sister dies giving birth to their son, Morty. Street Corner Dreams is an exploration of a timeless question: how much do we owe the families that have sacrificed for and shaped us—and does that debt outweigh what we owe ourselves and our own hopes and dreams for a better life?
