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.
