The Jewish storytelling community lost a beloved friend and teacher this past summer, one day before her 93rd birthday. Born in Belarus, Roslyn Bresnick-Perry bridged the past with the present with delightful tales of a shtetl childhood and a busy life in New York City, in Florida, and wherever she performed. Presented by her friend, editor, and fellow storyteller, Caren Neile, this lively performance/lecture will include tales from Ms. Perry's oeuvre, her biography, and a discussion of the place of the itinerant storyteller or maggid (in this case maggidah) in both the Old Country and the New World.
