Screening Room with Alan Lightman

May 25, 2016 Newton $0.00 0

Please join us to hear acclaimed author and MIT physicist, Alan Lightman, discuss his memoir of growing up in Memphis, including the music, the racism, the early days of movies, the hilarious cast of Jewish relatives and the family’s patriarch, his grandfather.

“Screwball, electric, heartfelt, and true, Screening Room pulls no punches. This is Lightman in a new guise, and yet never more himself as he resurrects with aching care the time, place and people that gave him life.” – Gish Jen, author of World and Town
