A Conversation with Author Deborah Tannen
Date(s) - 12/02/2020
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Our thanks go to Little Falls Village for inviting AHA members to attend this event. Tannen discusses her just-published memoir Finding My Father, which traces her father’s life from turn-of-the-century Warsaw to New York City. She reflects on how her father’s life mirrors the historic times he lived through and she describes how writing this book forced her to question her assumptions about her father, her parents’ marriage, and her own life. She also draws on insights from her many books to discuss how our ways of speaking can shape our relationships – and how our ways of speaking have changed, and changed our relationships, during COVID-19.
