Glen Eira Storytelling Festival: in Conversation with Magda Szubanski & Leah Kaminsky

City of Glen Eira Storytelling Festival 2016:

Bearing Witness across the Generations

In conversation with Magda Szubanski and Leah Kaminsky


Award-winning author and historian Clare Wright joins Magda Szubanski and Leah Kaminsky to discuss the various and profound tragedies of war and the resulting intergenerational trauma it can engender.

Szubanski’s memoir, Reckoning, unpacks her father’s time as an assassin in Poland during World War II while Kaminsky’s novel, The Waiting Room, follows a woman who is haunted by her mother’s memories of the Holocaust. Together these stories frame the background for this compelling event.
