Sunday, May 6, 5PM: Lydia Rosner, "The Russian Writer's Daughter"
The Russian Writer's Daughter by Lydia S. Rosner is a collection of lively autobiographical stories about growing up in a Russian-American Jewish household in the stifling political atmosphere of the Red Scare. At the center of these memories is Lyduce's father, whose complex personality mixes a passion for social justice, the desire to protect his family, and intellectual snobbery. In this revelatory memoir, international politics shadow a child's gradual awakening to her father's humanity. As she tells her family's story, Rosner shows how complicated autobiography can be, more a matter of pursuing the truth than asserting it.
Dr. Lydia S. Rosner Professor Emeritus of Sociology, has been on the faculty at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York since 1985. Mentioned in Two Thousand Notable American Women, Who's Who in America andWho's Who in the East, Dr. Rosner has traveled the world with a keen interest in cultures and social structures.
