The Life and Works of Irene Nemirovsky (and a Sneak Preview!)

Irene Nemirovsky was a famous writer in France before she was arrested and later killed at Auschwitz. Many of her works describe the lives of Jewish immigrants in France in the interwar period, as well as provide insight into French society of the time. A novella of hers, coming out in September, is The Prodigal Child. This was translated by Sandra, who will give a sneak preview of the work. (The first part of this lecture was last given for the Collaborative about five years ago.)
