Elizabeth Rosner

Meet the Schenctady native and author of The Speed of Light, Blue Nude and soon-to-be released, Electric City and Gravity

Elizabeth Rosner grew up in Schenectady, New York as a daughter of Jewish holocaust survivors. Her father, who was born in Hamburg, Germany, was sent to Buchenwald concentration camp, while her mother survived the war by hiding in the Polish countryside. Much of Ms. Rosner’s writing reflects her efforts to come to terms with the impact of her parents’ experiences on her own life, the indelible imprints of their history on her language, her identity, and her imagination. 

“Electric City is a vital, pulsing, epic novel of America, of its great scientific ingenuity and its emotional ambition; one that frames the birth and evolution of its towns against the struggles of its indigenous tribes, the immigrant experience, a country divided, and the technological advancements that ushered in the modern world.”

Gravity is a full-length collection of poetry that can be read as an autobiographical companion to her novels. These prize-winning poems offer insight into the author’s background and reveal many of the inspirations for The Speed of Light, Blue Nude and Electric City. ~www.elizabethrosner.com

A book sale and signing, conducted by The Open Door Bookstore, will follow the program. They will be offering a 20% discount on Electric city and Gravity. To order your copy, call the store at 518.346.2719.
