Leela Corman Book Signing for Unterzakhn
Admission: Free to the public
Unterzakhn (Schocken) is Leela Corman's mesmerizing, heartbreaking graphic novel about immigrant life on New York's Lower East Side at the turn of the 20th century. With brilliant illustrations that capture both the tumult and the telling details of the street life of the time, Unterzakhn tells the story of Esther and Fanya, twin sisters for whom the difference between mere survival and great success involves painful decisions with uncertain consequences.
