Author Event: Judy Batalion Discusses White Walls

White Walls
Join JWA on Tuesday, February 23 in Newton, MA to hear writer Judy Batalion read from and discuss her new book, White Walls, A Memoir About Motherhood, Daughterhood, and the Mess In Between. Recounting Batalion's experience as the daughter of a Holocaust survivor and hoarder, and then as a mother herself, White Walls has been called “a sharply funny, evocative, and moving memoir chronicling [Batalion's] voyage from daughter to mother as she finds her place in the world amidst the shifting currents of history, religion, time, and place.” Following the reading, Lori Lefkovitz, Ruderman Professor and Director of the Jewish Studies Program and Director of the Humanities Center at Northeastern University, will lead a Q&A session with Batalion.

The event is free, but advance registration is required. (The address for the event will be sent upon registration.) Register now for this special event.
