My Russian Grandmother and Her American Vacuum Cleaner

by Meir Shalev

 

Thursday, June 27
12:30-1:20 pm

 

From the acclaimed Israeli author comes a charming tale of family ties, over-the-top housekeeping, and the sport of storytelling in Nahalal, the village of Meir Shalev’s birth. Hilarious and touching, this is the story of Shalev’s family set against the story of the early years of Israel. Here we meet Shalev’s amazing Grandma Tonia, who arrived in Palestine by boat from Russia in 1923 and lived in a constant state of battle with what she viewed as the family’s biggest enemy in their new land: dirt.
