Lorraine Lotzof Abramson to speak at JCC of Greater New Haven

The JCC of Greater New Haven is pleased to host author Lorraine Lotzof Abramson as a speaker at 2 p.m. on Nov. 13.
The appearance is part of a celebration of November as Jewish Book Month, organizers said
She will discuss her memoir "My Race: A Jewish Girl Growing Up Under Apartheid in South Africa," sharing her ambitions, achievements, losses and growing unease with a system of social inequality that simultaneously excluded her, organizers said. 
Abramson won three gold medals in track at the Maccabi Games in Israel and eventually immigrated to the United States. Her book will be on sale and Abramson will sign books after her talk.
The event is free and open to the public.
The Jewish Community Center of Greater New Haven is at 360 Amity Road, Woodbridge
