Russian Voices Literary Night by Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan published on 2017-01-23T18:06:11Z Russian Jewish authors Boris Fishman, Irna Reyn, Lara Vapnyar, Olga Breydo and Sana Krasikov sit down with Senior Writer for Tablet Magazine Liel Leibovitz to discuss the challenges of being an immigrant and the way that it is reflected in their writing. Given the current political environment, few subjects could be more pertinent today than the aspirations, goals, dreams and nightmares of emigres to America. Tune in to hear how those qualities manifest themselves in the popular fiction of these five noted writers. Generation R is an initiative at JCC Manhattan for Russian-speakers in their 20's, 30's and 40's and their children and families. This program was recorded live on January 11, 2017 and is in English.
