Join us for “Jewish Life in Rural New England: How Did the Jews Get to Mars Hill, Maine, and Other Stories From the Field.”
From 2002 to 2006, Michael Hoberman conducted 50 interviews with over 60 Jews from various parts of rural New England for his book, “How Strange It Seems.” In this talk, he will tell the story of how he found, interviewed and maintained contact with this generationally, observationally and occupationally diverse group of people.
Hoberman teaches American literature at Fitchburg State University. His most recent book, “A Hundred Acres of America: The Geography of Jewish American Literary History,” was published in 2018 by Rutgers University Press, was named a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2019 and has been favorably reviewed in, among others, the LA Review of Books, Shofar and MELUS Journal. He lives in Buckland, Massachusetts.+ More... - Less...
