“When I Grow Up” – A Graphic Novel Exploring Interwar Teenage Jewish Life
Hosted By: YIVO
When I Grow Up is a new graphic nonfiction book, based on six of the hundreds of autobiographies of Eastern European Jewish teens collected by YIVO on the brink of WWII, including those discovered in 2017 which had been hidden in a Lithuanian church cellar. Created by New Yorker cartoonist Ken Krimstein, When I Grow Up shows readers the stories of six young men and women in illustrated narratives showcasing the humor, yearning, ambition, and angst of their teenage years. Join YIVO for a discussion with Krimstein led by scholar Jeffrey Shandler celebrating this new book.
