Still is a nonfiction biography/memoir written by longtime St. Louis Park residents Rebecca Bender and her father Kenneth Bender. It is a history of five generations, a family we meet first as they flee Odessa and last as they make their way as American Jews … and as Dakota farmers, as students and storekeepers, as soldiers and lawyers, and even as a teen in an international competition who stands face-to-face with Netanyahu. Still was published by North Dakota State University (NDSU) Press and recently was named the Winner of the 2019 Independent Press Award (Judaism category). Rebecca will read exerpts from her book and take questions. Books will be available for sale and Rebecca will be signing books following the event.
