Book Launch: Elena Georgiou presents The Immigrant’s Refrigerator
In conversation with Aaron Zimmerman
Co-presented by New York Writers Coalition
Part of Greenlight’s Immigrant Writing Series
Wine reception to follow
Lambda Literary Award winner Elena Georgiou launches her debut short story collection The Immigrant’s Refrigerator, as part of Greenlight’s ongoing Immigrant Writing Series focused on the voices and experiences of immigrants. Populated with a cast of characters who shine a light on what it means to be an outsider in the early part of the 21st century, these stories take the reader into the lives of those who have entered a country legally, others who were forced to enter illegally, and the rest who call a country home because of the geography of birth. Timely and vibrant, The Immigrant’s Refrigerator guides readers in a search for a future that will not only be a place of refuge, but also of hope. Georgiou discusses her work in conversation with Aaron Zimmerman, founder of the NY Writers Coalition. A wine reception follows to celebrate the book’s launch.
