Speaker Jen Rubin and Her Family Memoir

Jen Rubin will be presenting at this year’s conference.

She’s written a beautiful memoir about the neighborhood and family she grew up in in NYC. The book is We Are Staying: Eighty Years in the Life of a Family, a Store, and a Neighborhood.

She is holding a book event on March 5 at Room of One’s Own in Madison and if you are not able to be there, here’s a book trailer:

Even better, pick up a copy, read it, enjoy it and attend Jen’s sessions at the conference.
