Exploiting Your Family History For Fun and Profit: From the USSR to NYC

A workshop with Alina Adams, New York Times bestselling author and CRS congregant

Alina Adams’ new historical family saga, The Nesting Dolls, follows five generations of a Russian Jewish family from Odessa, USSR to Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.

Come hear Alina’s own immigration journey from the Soviet Union (complete with last minute teddy bear rescue!), and about the lives of  Soviet Jews during Stalin’s 1930s Great Terror, and the Refusnik movement of the 1970s.

Interested in turning your personal family history into a book to share with your children and grandchildren, a memoir for publication, or a fictionalized, best-selling novel?

In this hour-long workshop, Alina will take you through the process. Come with your questions—we’ll provide the answers!
