Author Talk with Katarzyna Jerzak
Author Katarzyna Jerzak, will read from her novella entitled "The Golden Age." The book is a meditation on childhood and loss, but also a love story. Jerzak wrote the book at the request of her cousin, Yoann Lemoine. The book is a literary accompaniment to his first music album. It is dedicated to the mothers in our family, because in addition to being loosely based on Yoann's life, it has the history of our family which has been blessed with strong Jewish mothers.
