#var:page_name# cover

Join the real life characters of Flying Couch, a graphic memoir by New Yorker cartoonist Amy Kurzweil, for a commemoration of the Holocaust and the healing power of storytelling and art. Flying Couch is about three generations of Jewish women: 92-year-old survivor Lily Fenster, born in Warsaw and living now in Birmingham, Michigan; her daughter Sonya Kurzweil, a psychologist in private practice and part-time faculty at Harvard Medical School; and her granddaughter Amy Kurzweil, the author and artist. Amy will discuss her book and its creation, and demonstrate the unique experience of drawing remembered stories. The evening also will feature an introduction by Sonya, who will reflect on what Flying Couch and the public telling of this history has meant for her, and a special appearance by Lily.
