Playwright Wendy Wasserstein will tell how storytelling affected her own writing Nov. 19 at 6 PM at the Museum of Jewish Heritage as a part of the Museum's Thursday evening series. Wasserstein, whose plays humorously chronicle contemporary Jewish American life, is the author of The Sisters Rosensweig, The Heidi Chronicles and An American Daughter. She wrote the screenplay for "The Object of My Affection" and has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize (1989), the Tony Award (1991), the Drama Critics Circle Prize and the Drama Desk Award.
The event is free with admission into the museum. The Museum of Jewish Heritage is located at 18 First Place on the waterfront of Battery Park City.
