Author Shalom Auslander & Moment Magazine's Memoir Awards

Spertus was very pleased to partner with Moment magazine and writer Shalom Auslander for the award ceremony of Moment magazine’s memoir writing contest. At this special event, attendees enjoyed a reading by the contest’s winner, Hillel F. Damron, followed by an appearance by writer Shalom Auslander, guest judge for this contest. Mr. Auslander discussed personal influences on his work, including the quirks of faith and family. A booksigning followed the program.  Second-place winner Eve Silberman, a profiles editor and staff writer for the monthly Ann Arbor Observer, also joined us for the evening.

Please note that Mr. Auslander’s books and programs contained adult content.  Related audio also contains explicit content.
