Memoirists write their personal stories in a way that appeals to the emotions and experiences of their readers.

Jewish memoirists Esther Amini (Concealed: A Memoir of a Jewish-Iranian Daughter Caught Between the Chador and America), Angela Himsel (A River Could be a Tree), and Ilan Stavans (The Seventh Heaven: Travels through Jewish Latin America) will sit down with Sandee Brawarsky, culture editor of The Jewish Week, to talk about how they use the memoir format to express their identity and history.

The cost of admission directly supports programs like this at 92Y.
