6:00pm [6:30pm] Author Talk - Award Winning Hanna Perlstein Marcus
Set in the deteriorating north end of Springfield, Massachusetts in the 1950s and early ’60s, 'Surviving Remnant' is Hanna Perlstein Marcus’ sequel to her award-winning memoir, Sidonia’s Thread. 'Marcus’ experiences growing up with her mother in an enclave of Holocaust survivors portray a story no one knows... until now. "Surviving Remnant' is an authentic look at a poignant immigrant saga from deep inside. Marcus, a former Town of Manchester employee, was born at the Bergen Belsen displaced persons camp after World War II and later immigrated to Springfield, Massachusetts with her mother. She is a UMass and UConn graduate and a licensed clinical social worker in Connecticut. Her first book, 'Sidonia’s Thread' was the winner of the 2014 Best Kindle Book Award for nonfiction and was nominated for the Sophie Brody Medal and the Sarton Memoir Prize.
