Roberta Dietzen, a North Shore author, will be the next featured speaker at the Chicago Jewish Authors Literary Series. She will present at Max and Benny’s Restaurant on Monday evening, May 5, starting at 7:00 pm. Come early and have dinner before the event. Ms. Dietzen’s new book, “Gypsy Music Street,” is a memoir; a family history about love, loss and the endless ramifications of the Holocaust through the generations that followed. The story delves into what it means to be a child of immigrants, a caregiver for an aged parent, and the occasionally exasperating mother/daughter relationship that will resonate with many readers. After her mother’s death, the author embraced her mother’s dream of seeing the town of her birth and youth just one more time. She made an extraordinary journey to Hungary and Ukraine to explore her family history. “Gypsy Music Street” is available in print or as an ebook on Amazon.
