Description

Jewish&: Jewish Identity in Middle-School and Young Adult Literature

Featuring Madelyn Rosenberg and Wendy Shang, authors of This is Just a Test

Sunday, February 23, 4:00 - 5:30 PM

Writing partners Madelyn Rosenberg and Wendy Wan-Long Shang will talk about fusing cultural identities for their middle-grade novel THIS IS JUST A TEST. Set during Cold War fears of the 1980s, the story features David Da-Wei Horowitz, who is pretty sure he’s the only Chinese-Jewish boy in Virginia. He tries to manage dueling identities, dueling friends and dueling grandmothers, all while preparing for his bar mitzvah. The authors will also discuss cultural similarities, growing up as “the only one,” and how we all have more than one identity.
