Ellen Feldman, author of nine novels, will join Elyse Mall Klayman to discuss her latest work The Trouble With You (2024). Set in New York City in the heady aftermath of World War II, the book tells the story of a young woman whose rosy future is upended in a single instant. Fanny is a young mother torn between her cousin Mimi, who is determined to keep her a “nice girl” — the kind that marries a doctor — and her aunt Rose, who has a rebellious past of her own. Struggling to raise her young daughter and forge a new life by sheer will and pluck, she takes a job in the entertainment business and comes face to face with the blacklist which is destroying careers and wrecking lives. Ultimately, she must decide between playing it safe or doing what she knows is right in a world that — to contemporary readers — seems at once light years away and strangely immediate. Time will be reserved for Q&A. Registered students will each receive a copy of the book.
