Presenting our first Spring 2012 Gotham History Forum:
The Soviet-Jewish Experience in NYC, 1972 – 2000 in Fact and Fiction
Thursday, February 16, 2012 -- 6:30 p.m.
CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue @ 34th Street – Martin E. Segal Theater
Every immigrant has a story. For Russian immigrants in New York, those stories reveal the history, politics, and passion for storytelling that is the lifeblood of the Russian people. Please join us for a panel discussion on the Soviet Jewish immigrant experience from 1972 to 2000, with readings by authors whose essays and novels were inspired by that experience. The panel will include Russian émigré writers Anya Ulinich, Lina Zeldovich, Mikhail Iossel and American authors Emily Rubin and Annelise Orleck of Dartmouth University. Book signings to follow.
Co-sponsored by the Center for Jewish Studies
