After the Silence
Reception, Book Reading and Discussion
Sunday, April 2, 2017, at 2 p.m.
Welwyn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road
Glen Cove, NY
You are invited to a reception celebrating the publication of After the Silence, an anthology edited by Lillian Gewirtzman and Karla Nieraad. Lillian and the American contributors to the anthology, who are second and third generation descendants of Jews and Germans, will read excerpts and lead a discussion highlighting the themes in After the Silence. Struggling with questions, having grown up in families that often remained silent – on both sides – these children and grandchildren, Jews and Germans, both from New York and Ulm, have come together in this book.
The program will include a discussion of the development of the book as well as a question and answer session after the readings. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and to be signed. Light refreshments will be served.
There is a suggested donation of $10 to attend. To RSVP contact Deborah Lom at (516) 571-8040 or email@example.com.
