Drop-In Book Club: What Language Do I Dream In? by Elena Lappin

Free admission with free garage parking on Pierce Street between Ellis and Eddy streets.

Jim Van Buskirk leads a discussion of What Language Do I Dream In? by Elena Lappin

In this rich family mosaic, Moscow-born, London-based writer and editor Elena Lappin explores the impact of her peripatetic, multilingual background on the development of her identity and sense of home. As she reconstructs the stories and secrets of her parents and grandparents, each language one or more of them spoke—Russian, Czech, German, Hebrew, and finally, English—is a link to a different piece of Lappin's struggle.
