The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community program welcomes Jana Laiz for "Writing to Right the World."

Writing presents an opportunity to effect change through the impact of words and messaging.  Join us as we explore this perspective through the work of author, former refugee resettlement caseworker, literacy teacher and educator, Jana Laiz.  Jana has written books on such topics as climate change, slavery, animal rights, and refugee awareness. 

She will also discuss a writer's mission and the writing life and how these aspects have changed not only the lives of others, but hers as well.

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
