Deborah Feldman

Reading with the New York Times Bestselling Author.

 

At 17, Deborah Feldman was forcibly married in the middle of Brooklyn. Isolated from the outside world, Deborah Feldman lived in an Orthodox Jewish community founded by Shoa survivors. Books were forbidden, Yiddish the only language. When she was 23, one morning she put her son in her little Kia and left this life. The book she wrote about it, Unorthodox, catapulted her to the top of the New York Times bestseller list and has sold millions. It was both a sensation and a scandal. It made her not only a bestselling author, but also an outlaw, losing all contact with her family. In the highly acclaimed report Überbitten, which Deborah Feldman will also be presenting at the festival, she describes how it went on with her life afterwards.

 

The conversation with Deborah Feldman will be held in German.
