30th June: Hadley Freeman In Conversation with Anne Karpf.

'The Story and Secrets of a 20th Century Jewish Family'

When Hadley Freeman found a shoebox filled with her grandmother’s treasured belongings, it started a quest to find out their significance and to dig deep into the lives of Sala Glass and her three brothers. The search took Hadley from Picasso’s archives in Paris to a secret room in a farmhouse in Auvergne to Long Island and to Auschwitz. House of Glass, her insightful, bestselling memoir, follows the Glass siblings through the course of the twentieth century, deftly exploring complex issues of assimilation, identity and the concept of home.

Hadley Freeman grew up in New York City and London. She has been a staff writer at The Guardian since 2000.

Anne Karpf is a sociologist and award-winning journalist, contributing regularly to The Guardian and other publications. Her books include How to Age, translated into ten languages, her most recent, How Women Can Save The Planet and acclaimed family memoir The War After: Living with the Holocaust. She is Professor of Life Writing and Culture at London Metropolitan University.

Organiser Primrose Hill Lecture Series

Organiser of PHLS 2021: Hadley Freeman with Anne Karpf on 'A 20th Century Jewish Family'

For almost 20 years, The Primrose Hill Lecture Series has been exploring, and debating, some of the most important issues we face as a modern society. We are now recognised as one of London’s leading spaces for bold, lively and informative talks.

We are a non-profit organisation run by volunteers: the money we raise goes towards valuable community work - including vital local services for the homeless, vulnerable young people and the elderly - and the upkeep of the building that hosts them.
