Overview

Co-Sponsored by the Washington, DC JCC

David Bezmozgis, Boris Fishman, and Lara Vapnyar were all born in the Soviet Union in the 1970s and moved to North America as part of a wave of Jewish emigration. All three write about leaving behind a country that will soon disappear and a history that is continually being re-written. Join us for a discussion of East and West, language and identity, the old Russia and the new.
