When most people show up to work, they don’t expect to receive a meatloaf. But for Robert, that’s just par for the course. Through Robert’s job as an end-of-life care provider for Holocaust survivors, and the recent death of his daughter, Somerville author Daphne Kalotay explores themes of loss, community, and rejuvenation in this year’s One City One Story selection, “Relativity.” Kalotay, who currently teaches at Princeton, is the author of two novels and a short story collection. The session will be hosted by associate director for programming at Harvard’s Office for the Arts and facilitator extraordinaire Alicia Anstead. Tweet her your questions and thoughts ahead of time at @1city1story! If you haven't already, be sure to pick up your copy of this touching story at the information tent. Sponsored by BookBub.
