Literary Night with Boris Fishman: Book Release

March 7 , 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Be among the first to hear Generation R favorite Boris Fishman read from his new memoir Savage Feast: Three Generations, Two Continents, and a Dinner Table (Feb 2019). It’s a family memoir told through recipes, and an inquiry into all the meanings food can have after generations of scarcity, from the author’s great-grandparents in Minsk before World War II until today.

Savage Feast includes passages about a narrowly-avoided firing squad, pursuit by the KGB, chapters on immigrating through Vienna and Rome, cooking at a Russian restaurant on the Lower East Side, and some hard-earned romance!

A labor of love for the past five years, Boris is excited to share his intimate new memoir with the Generation R community – and beyond!

Cost: $15, then $25 after March 1 (includes signed copy of the book).
