When Esther Safran Foer’s mother casually mentioned an astonishing revelation—that her father had a previous wife and daughter, both killed in the Holocaust—she resolved to find out who they were, and how her father survived. Armed with only a black-and-white photo and a hand-drawn map, she traveled to Ukraine, determined to find the shtetl where her father hid during the war. What she found reshaped her identity and gave her the opportunity to finally mourn.

Join us for the launch of the post-Holocaust memoir I Want You to Know We’re Still Here by Esther Safran Foer, who will be joined be her son Jonathan Safran Foer, author of the acclaimed books Everything Is Illuminated, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, and Eating Animals. The reading and conversation will follow with a virtual audience Q&A.
