The Gloucester Writers Center presents Helen Fremont, the author of the national best selling memoir After Long Silence on October 30th, 7:30 p.m. at 126 East Main St. In addition to being a memoirist she is also a public defender in Boston. She will answer questions and dialogue with the audience after her talk A Perspective- Point of View in Memoir.
Helen and her sister grew up Roman Catholic, and it was not until she was in her thirties, that they discovered that their parents were Jewish Holocaust survivors. The book Traces the stories of her parents’ lives, including her father’s years as a political prisoner in the Siberian Gulag, and her aunt’s marriage to an Italian Count, who was instrumental in saving her mother’s life. Other works of fiction and non-fiction have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, including 1994: The O. Henry Awards, Ploughshares, and The Harvard Review. She is currently working on her second memoir focusing on her and her sister’s lives, and how the trauma of one generation is expressed in the next.
The Gloucester Writers Center was founded to celebrate, preserve, and promote Gloucester’s rich literary legacy and to create space in the community for the voices of people of all ages and backgrounds to be heard through writing, dialogue, and the artistic process.
