America in the Eyes of Immigrants
May 5 , 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
UJA-Federation and The Jewish Week present award-winning authors Roya Hakakian and Ruby Namdar in conversation about their experience immigrating to America, what they miss about their homelands, their literary lives and the Jewish ideal of welcoming the stranger. Hakakian, born in Iran, is the author of “Assassins of the Turquoise Palace,” “Journey from the Land of No” and most recently “A Beginner’s Guide to America: For the Immigrant and the Curious.” Namdar, born and raised in Jerusalem and now living in New York City, is the author of “The Ruined House,” which won the Sapir Prize, Israel’s most prestigious literary award. Moderated by Sandee Brawarsky. Register here.
