Carry Gorney: ‘Send me a Parcel with a Hundred Lovely Things’

Virtual Event Virtual Event

In her memoir Send me a Parcel with a Hundred Lovely Things, Carry Gorney considers how her own life was shaped by her refugee antecedents’ experience of displacement and reinvention – ordinary people caught up in extraordinary times. The book includes extracts from her parents’ letters, revealing a historic resentment and suspicion of refugees and a unique picture of the internment camps on the Isle of Man.

The latter will form the focus of this online event, which will comprise a dramatised reading by two professional actors of some of these moving extracts.

In Carry’s own words: “working over many years as an artist, film maker, writer and psychotherapist. I have used creative arts to create and enhance communities by linking lives. My goal has always been to strengthen the threads which connect us across beliefs, across ethnicity and across time.”

This event is held in partnership with Jewish Renaissance magazine.
