Part of Jewish Book Month - The Last Hotel: A Novel in Suites

7:00PM - 9:00PM  

Congregation Ahavath Sholom 15 North Street
Great Barrington, MA 01230

As part of Jewish Book Month, Sonia Pilcer, author of six novels, will read from her newest work, The Last Hotel, based on a residential hotel her father managed on the Upper West Side in the 1970s.  Born in a displaced persons camp in Landsberg, Germany, Pilcer was raised in New York City.  From the Booklist review of her previous novel,  Holocaust Kid: “Wit and humor interface with stark realities and unanswerable questions. Provocative fiction, not just for the second generation but for all our collective memories.” Free.
