Join Boston’s center for Jewish culture, Vilna Shul, at Old South Meeting House for a conversation with local authors Jenna Blum and Randy Susan Meyers. New York Times Best Selling local author Jenna Blum will read from her new book, The Lost Family, talk about her career, and answer questions about her writing process with author Randy Susan Meyers. Guests have the option to attend the conversation only, or supplement their experience with a signed copy of Blum’s book.
Jenna Blum is the author of the novels Those Who Save Us and The Stormchasers. She was also voted one of Oprah’s Top 30 Women Writers. Jenna is based in Boston, where she earned her MA from Boston University and has taught fiction and novel workshops for Grub Street Writers for twenty years.
Randy Susan Meyers’ novels have twice been chosen by the Massachusetts Center for the Book, as “Must Read Fiction.” Her book, Accidents of Marriage, was a People Magazine pick. Her debut, The Murderer’s Daughters, was the Target National Book Club Pick. Meyers teaches writing at Grub Street in Boston and Writers in Progress in Western MA.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
