Relative History
Authors Dan Mendelsohn and Lise Funderburg have devoted years to dissecting the minutiae of family stories, framed by the grand sweep of history. Mendelsohns Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million is a gripping account of six of his own family membersHolocaust victimsuncovered through a detective-like search for facts about their lives and deaths. Lise Funderburgs Pig Candy reconstructs the Jim Crow south as she tends to her dying father who is living out his final years in his boyhood home in rural Georgia. Mendelsohn and Funderburg will read from their work and discuss how family stories personalize the abstractions of history.
