Women on the Move

Jennifer Rosner, Once We Were Home

This poignant novel, Once We Were Home, based on true stories about Jewish children saved by Christians challenges readers to consider identity, good intentions and unforeseen consequences. What happens when the war ends and children are wrenched from what they long considered their families? Or when the people who saved them refuse to let them go?

Jennifer Rosner, a finalist for two National Jewish Book awards, is the author of the novel The Yellow Bird Sings, the memoir If a Tree Falls: A Families Quest to Hear and be Heard, and the picture book, The Mitten Strings.

Women on the Move

A Virtual Series

Friendships. Family. Ethical dilemmas. The tangled intricacies of power. Leading female authors – New York Times bestsellers, Pulitzer Prize winners, Whiting Award winners, National Jewish Book Award finalists – who have tackled those questions in novels and memoirs will join Woman on the Move discuss the inspirations for their characters, what they love about writing and where they expect their imaginations will take them next.

This series is moderated by Zibby Owens, an author and editor whose multimedia empire of a publishing house, magazine, and podcast led New York Magazine to dub her “New York’s Most Powerful Book-fluencer,” Jordana Horn, a journalist at Kveller and Marjorie Shuster, Coordinator of Literary Events at Temple Emanu-El.
