Ellen G. Friedman will talk about a WW II memoir and family saga, “The Seven, A Family Story.” The story tracks seven people, related by blood, love, or friendship through killing times and exotic geographies. These people acted out of necessity, love, desperation, and hunger. The book’s title comes from the unusual unity that distinguished them from the thousands of other refugees in the gulags of the U.S.S.R. Their unity and intimacy earned them the moniker by which other gulag exiles who had lost or were separated from family and friends, identified them, the Seven. Cost to attend is $5 for museum members; $10 for non-members; and free for students with ID.
