THE BOSTON GIRL
by Anita Diamant
Author/Presenter: Anita Diamant
Best selling author
from the New York Times of
The Red Tent and Day After Night
Anita Diamant presents her "unforgettable novel" about family ties and values, friendship and feminism told through the eyes of a young Jewish woman growing up in Boston in the early twentieth century.
Eighty-five-year-old Addie Baum is The Boston Girl, born in 1900 who tells the story of her life to her twenty-two-year-old granddaughter, who has asked her "How did you get to be the woman you are today"?
Written with the same attention to historical detail and emotional resonance that made Anita Diamant's previous novels bestsellers, The Boston Girl is a moving portrait of one woman's complicated life in twentieth century America.
Program is co-sponsored by the Jewish Historical Society of Fairfield County and the Harry Bennett Library.
