Letty Cottin Pogrebin, a founding editor of Ms. magazine and author of twelve books, will discuss her newly published memoir in conversation with cultural historian Lori Rotskoff.
Yiddish for shame, Shanda presents a wise yet funny self-examination of the author's numerous family secrets across three generations. With candor, Pogrebin reveals family traumas, unhappy marriages, abandoned children, religious transgressions, repressed sexual identities, and radical political beliefs. Through unmasking, Pogrebin also paints a touching portrait of a family that, like many others, has a talent for reinvention and survival.
Books will be available for pick up and author signature at the event.
Time will be reserved for Q&A.
