Book Talk: Finding My Father

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage

In her book Finding My Father: His Century-Long Journey from World War I Warsaw and My Quest To Follow, renowned linguist and #1 New York Times bestselling author Deborah Tannen pieces together the fascinating puzzle of her father’s life. His journey from Warsaw’s Hasidic community to New York City is an evocative Jewish story, one that reflects the tensions of the century in which he lived and challenges Tannen’s assumptions about her family and herself. This memoir of Eli Tannen’s life is Deborah Tannen’s most personal work yet.
