It is a tale of the disruption and dispersal of an immigrant family, the twilight of the artisan crafts, and the efforts of each generation to shape its destiny. A consummate storyteller, Claire Gebben demonstrates a brilliant ability to imagine and recreate the past with historical vigor and beauty.

William Barrow, Head, Special Collections at Michael Schwartz Library, will also discuss how Cleveland Memory.org and Special Collections can support family history research, as it did with our featured author.
