On Memoir: A Q&A with Jean Hannah Edelstein

Monday, October 14, 2019 at 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Klein Conference Room, Room A510, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall Room 510, 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011

Please join us for an open conversation with Edelstein about memoir writing, book publishing, youth, and grief.

Jean Hannah Edelstein was looking for love on OKCupid the night she lost her father. She had recently moved back to America to be closer to her parents, leaving behind the good friends, bad dates and questionable career moves that defined her twenties. But six weeks after she arrived in New York, her father died of cancer – and six months after that, she learned she had inherited the gene that determined his fate.
