Virtual Author Salon: Florence Reiss Kraut Discussing “How to Make a Life” October 13

How to Make a Life is a sweeping saga that follows four generations from the tenements of Brooklyn through WWII, from Woodstock to India, and from Spain to Israel. It tells the story of a family who must learn to accept each other’s differences–or risk cutting ties with the very people who anchor their place in the world.

Florence Reiss Kraut is a native New Yorker, raised and educated in four of the five boroughs of New York City. She holds a BA in English and a master’s in social work. She worked for thirty years as a clinician, a family therapist, and the CEO of a family service agency before retiring to write and travel widely.
