Southern: Irving Lubliner on Memoirs

January 4, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Willamette Writers Southern Oregon Chapter Meeting Logo

Want to kick your writing off to a great start? Join us at The Southern Oregon WIllamette Writers Chapter on January 4th from 10-noon.

Irving Lubliner will work with us on telling difficult stories, and show us how his own writing process developed over time as he published the Holocaust memoirs of his mother, Felicia Bornstein Lubliner.

Before she passed away in 1974, Felicia Bornstein Lubliner wrote about her internment in Polish ghettos and two Nazi concentration camps, Auschwitz and Gross-Rosen. Her powerful stories have recently been published by her son, Irving Lubliner, an emeritus SOU professor and Ashland resident. He will share excerpts from Only Hope: A Survivor’s Stories of the Holocaust, shedding light on his mother’s experiences and indomitable spirit, as well as his experience as a child of Holocaust survivors and his process in bringing the book to fruition.

Irving Lubliner had a 40-year career as a math educator, both as a classroom teacher and a consultant, working with every grade from kindergarten through graduate school. He led workshops for elementary and secondary math teachers in 39 states and gave over 350 conference presentations, including several keynote addresses. He was granted Professor Emeritus status when he retired from SOU in 2014. Irving now serves on the board for our local Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), where he also teaches classes (blues harmonica and math). In 2019, he created Felabra Press and published Only Hope, a book that was a work in progress for many years, and his presentation will be about that endeavor.

Join us on January 4th at the Central Point City Hall Council Chambers, 140 S. 3rd St, Central Pt, OR

See you in 2020!
