New Books, New Lives: Jewish Immigrant Women, Reading and Identity.”  

A talk by Dr. Barbara Sicherman based on her book

Well-Read Lives: How Books Inspired a Generation of American Women 

 

We are pleased to invite you to a talk by historian Professor Barbara Sicherman entitled “New Books, New Lives: Jewish Immigrant Women, Reading and Identity.” This talk is based on Dr. Sicherman’s recent book, Well-Read Lives: How Books Inspired a Generation of American Women (UNC Press). Dr. Sicherman, the author of numerous books and articles, writes about women, privileged and not, real and imagined. Well-Read Lives tells moving stories of how young women born in Victorian times lost--and found--themselves in books and worked out a life purpose around them. By discovering the meaning of reading to women in the past, today's readers can gain insight into their own lives. Dr. Sicherman is a professor emerita at Trinity College.
