Tonight, playwright Arthur Miller and authors Jorie Graham, Cynthia Ozick and Grace Paley will do a live reading from their works at the opening of "Not for Myself Alone: Celebrating Jewish-American Writers," an exhibition of first editions by Jewish-American writers.
Originally organized by Princeton University's Firestone Library, "Not for Myself Alone" draws together poetry, fiction, drama, essays, artwork, and correspondence from some 75 men and women who have enriched American culture across two centuries. The exhibit is sponsored by the American Jewish Historical Society, and will be shown at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St., New York City, through September 4, 2003.
The event will be webcast from 7-9pm/EST at www.cjh.org. There will be a question and answer session following the readings. The reading is invitation-only.
