Meet Me in Charlottesville on May 23

Tomorrow at 4 p.m., I’ll be at New Dominion Bookshop in Charlottesville, VA, sharing stories about growing up in rural Indiana with a Russian Jewish father. (The video above, showing me and my dad, features a sneak peek at some home videos I’ll be showing! If you can’t see the video, click here.)

Elizabeth Derby did a wonderful write-up and preview in Cville Weekly.

The event is part of a nationwide 9-city book launch for Every Father’s Daughter. I’ll be giving away a signed copy of the book with signatures from other contributors, including the book’s editor, Margaret McMullan, and Phillip Lopate. I’ll also bring matzos to snack on.
