Celebrate the first night of Chanukah with the Vilna and author Lisa Gruenberg. In the early 2000s, a family crisis set Boston physician Lisa Gruenberg on the unexpected path to being a writer. In 2012, she received a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowship in Fiction/Creative Nonfiction and in 2019, she published her memoir, “My City of Dreams.” Join her for reflections on writing, being a doctor during these trying times and the holiday of lights.

In partnership with Falmouth Jewish Congregation and Worcester JCC.
