Virtual Book Talk – Stitching a Life
Join us on YouTube Live for a free virtual book talk with Mary Helen Fein, author of Stitching A Life: An Immigration Story.
Told by her granddaughter, in 1900, Helen flees persecution in Lithuania and travels, by steerage to America first by way of Ellis Island and then, to the Lower East Side. Her story is familiar, quickly finding a job in the thriving garment district while devoting her time and money to send home to bring the rest of her family to safety in New York. As each family member arrives, they throw themselves into the same working fervor as Helen for the same cause. A new home, in a new country. Helen, eventually finds a different kind of New York, with love.
Venue: YouTube Live | Tenement Museum
