As Americans unite to heal from disaster, author Sonia Pilcer explores how a person can preserve a sense of self after enduring a world of chaos and evil. Booklist described Pilcer's about a Holocaust survivor family and their rebellious daughter as "provocative fiction, not just for the second generation, but for all our collective memories."

Pilcer's book of "finely crafted stories" focuses on Zosha Palovsky, born in a displaced persons camp in Germany, as Pilcer was, and her search for an identity apart from her parents' history. Now you can hear Sonia Pilcer read from what promises to be a stimulating evening with a strong, new Jewish voice.
