Houston Public Library presents HPLQ Spring Series: Andrea Zapruder
Alexandra Zapruder began her career on the founding staff of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. She is the author of Salvaged Pages: Young Writers’ Diaries of the Holocaust, which she saw produced as I’m Still Here, a documentary film for young audiences nominated for two Emmy awards. She also served as the guest curator for an exhibition of original diaries at Holocaust Museum Houston. Alexandra travels around the country and speaks to thousands of teachers, students, and others about her work.
In her latest book, Twenty-Six Seconds, Zapruder uses previously sealed archival sources, personal family records, and interviews to explore issues of privacy, ethics, public representation of violence, and the media’s role in disseminating information.
