Writers In Residences* (*theirs and ours)
Writers In Residences* (*theirs and ours), also known as WIR*, is a Lancaster-based author series that began in September 2020. The current - 4th - season runs from September 11, 2023 through April 7, 2024 and features seven author programs.
During all programs the authors speak to us in real time via Zoom, with time for Q&A from the viewers. Each thoughtfully chosen author is paired with a carefully chosen moderator who has read the book in advance to engage with the author in discussion about their book. The vast majority of authors chosen for the series write nonfiction books in a wide variety of genres. To date the books presented covered the following categories: art, biography/autobiography/memoir, cookbooks/food, government & politics, health and lifestyle, history, Holocaust, Israel, Jewish religion and philosophy, and sports.
Writers In Residences* is presented by the Jewish Community Alliance of Lancaster (JCAL) jcalancaster.org.
Writers In Residences* is sponsored by The Family of Beth Pomerantz.
All of the authors in the series come to us through the Jewish Book Council (JBC) Authors on Tour program, jewishbookcouncil.org.
The programs are free; however, registration is required to attend. One does not have to be Jewish to either attend or enjoy the programs. It is the goal of WIR* that all participating listen and learn together.
