Author Talk: Miriam Frank - A Journey Around My Mother
30 November 2016 6:00pm — 8:00pm
Join Miriam Frank for a candid look at her latest book, An Unfinished Portrait, a memoir tracing the life of her anarchist mother through her photo album. Following her mother’s journeys from Republican Barcelona, Twenties’ Berlin, the Mediterranean, London’s Bloomsbury, and Paris’ post Belle Epoque, Miriam reconstructs a life peopled by political and cultural refugees, ex-Communists, photographers, artists, writers and historians, weaving a delicate portrait of identity, remembrance and belonging.
Miriam arrived with her mother as a WWII exile in Christchurch, where she went to high school. She went on to train at Otago University medical school, before a career that took her to Israel and then London. She is a regular visitor to New Zealand.
