Join Ifill College for a book talk with Sacha Lamb on Thursday, February 29 at 3:30PM in Trustman Art Gallery!
Sacha Lamb is a 2018 Lambda Literary Fellow in Young Adult fiction, and a graduate of Simmons University’s Library & Information Science and History MS/MA program. Their debut novel, When The Angels Left the Old Country, explores queerness, Jewish identity, and immigration. The book has received starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and Publishers Weekly. The narrative was initially inspired by their history thesis on Jewish women’s support for immigration in the 1920s, advised by former Simmons Professor and Public Humanities Chair Laura Prieto.
Since publishing their debut short piece, Avi Cantor Has Six Months to Live, Sacha has regularly contributed book reviews to the Jewish Book Council, and appeared in the Foreshadow YA anthology online with Epistolary.
This program is part of Ifill College's signature event series Mentors in Residence. Light refreshments will be served and copies of When Angels Left the Old Country will be available for purchase.
