An Evening with Nora Krug
Belonging: A German Reckons with History and Home
Wednesday, April 17, 8:00 pm
About the Program
In her heartrending graphic memoir, National Book Critics Circle f inalist Nora Krug excavates her family’s troubling wartime past in Nazi Germany. Hailed as “a mazy and ingenious reckoning with the past” by the New York Times, this page-turning collage is also profoundly meaningful to contemporary American life.
In a wide-ranging conversation with Louise Steinman, literary curator and author of a memoir about Polish-Jewish reconciliation, Krug discusses what it’s like to be German today and how, through her own restless remembering, coming to terms with the past can begin.
