Join us in the library or online for a conversation with Kitty Zeldis, author of The Dressmakers of Prospect Heights: A Novel, a mesmerizing historical novel about three women in 1920s New York City and the secrets they hold. Joining Zadek in conversation is Evelyn Herschler from Seaside Jewish Community.
Brooklyn, 1924. As New York City enters the jazz age, the lives of three very different women are about to converge in unexpected ways. Recently arrived from New Orleans, Beatrice is working to establish a chic new dress shop with help from Alice, the orphaned teenage ward she brought north with her. Down the block, newlywed Catherine is restless in her elegant brownstone, longing for a baby she cannot conceive. Moving from the bustling streets of early twentieth century New York City to late nineteenth-century Russia and the lively quarters of New Orleans in the 1910s, The Dressmakers of Prospect Heights is a story of the families we are born into and the families we choose, and of the unbreakable bonds between women.
Kitty Zeldis is the pseudonym for a novelist and non-fiction writer of books for adults and children. She lives with her family in Brooklyn, NY.
This program is co-sponsored by Seaside Jewish Community.
