Erika Dreifus, author of the short story collection Quiet Americans, which won the 2012 ALA Sophie Brody Medal Honor Title for outstanding Jewish literature, will read from her work at 4 p.m. on November 12 in the Walter Harding Lounge, Welles 111.
As Dreifus’ website explains, the stories in Quiet Americans “reframe familiar questions about what is right and wrong, remembered and repressed, resolved and unending. Portions of the proceeds from sales of Quiet Americans are being donated to The Blue Card, which supports survivors of Nazi persecution and their families in the United States.”
