May Event in D.C.—Family Stories: Daughters, Mothers, and Bubbes

On Sunday, I was fortunate to visit the National Museum of American Jewish Military History, a marvelous gem of a place near Dupont Circle in Washington. I was there to give a reading from my new short-story collection, Quiet Americans, but I also had time to tour the exhibitions, and I’m so glad that I did.

While I was there, I learned about a forthcoming event that may be of interest to some of you:

The National Museum of American Jewish Military History and The Washington DC Jewish Community Center present:

Family Stories: Daughters, Mothers, and Bubbes
Sunday May 1, 2011, 1pm-5pm

Are you a photographer, an artist, a filmmaker? A writer or storyteller? A stand-up comedian, dancer, or singer? Always wanted to try one of these? Come show off your talents!

On May 1, the museum and the Washington, DC Jewish Community Center will devote this special afternoon to some of the most important women in our lives. We invite you to portray your beloved female relatives through a skit, scrapbook, video, song and dance routine, or whatever your imagination can conjure.
