COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Author Nancy Miller is sharing the discoveries she made while finding about her family history and how it was tangled up in the massive migration of Jews to the United States.

Miller’s talk scheduled for Tuesday is titled, “My Memoirs Made Me Jewish: Family, Memory and the Writing Self.” It is being delivered as the University of South Carolina’s annual Solomon-Tennenbaum Lecture at the Ernest F. Hollings Library.

The event was originally set for February, but was canceled because of a winter storm. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Miller is a distinguished professor of English and Comparative Literature at City University of New York Graduate Center and is the author of a dozen books.
