Join acclaimed Jewish Latin American authors and longtime friends Marjorie Agosin and Ruth Behar as they talk about their explorations of the voyages of memory in their fiction and other writing. Ruth will speak about her new middle grade novel, Across So Many Seas, a sweeping historical saga focused on the gripping stories of four girls from many generations of a Sephardic family. Marjorie will speak about her memoir, A Cross and a Star: Memoirs of a Jewish Girl in Chile, which tells the story of her mother’s memory growing up in the south of Chile with pro-Nazi German settlers, as well as her most recent book, Aldo Izzo and the Jewish Cemetery of the Lido.

This event will take place at the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, MA. The event is free, but registration is encouraged.
