El Paso, TX – NPR Special Correspondent Susan Stamberg will appear in El Paso for a one-night only speaking engagement that is open to the public on Thursday, November 8, 2018.  The event will be held at Temple Mount Sinai, 4408 N. Stanton, at 7pm.  Doors open at 6:30pm and the cost of the event is only $5 per person in advance, $10 at the door.  Tickets may be purchased online at templemountsinai.com/susanstamberg.  A dessert reception in honor of Stamberg will follow her speech.

The first woman to anchor a national nightly news program, Stamberg has won every award in broadcasting and has been inducted into the Broadcasting Hall of Fame and the Radio Hall of Fame.  She spent 14 years as co-host of NPR’s award-winning newsmagazine All Things Considered, then hosted Weekend Edition/Sunday for three years.  She currently serves as guest host of NPR’s All Things Considered, Morning Edition and Weekend Edition/Saturday. She also reports on cultural issues for various NPR programs.

One of the most popular broadcasters in public radio, Stamberg is well-known for her conversational style, intelligence and knack for finding an interesting story.  Her thousands of interviews include conversations with Laura Bush, Rosa Parks, Luciano Pavarotti, Stephen Sondheim and Billy Joel.  She is the Author of two books, TALK: NPR’s Susan Stamberg Considers All Things and Every Night at Five.

Stamberg will speak on the “Jews of Shanghai,” a little-known Holocaust story about 23,000 Central European Jews who fled Hitler during World War II but only got as far as Shanghai, China when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. Trapped there for nearly 10 years, they lived under terrible conditions in the slums of Shangai, where they slowly built up a “Little Europe” with cafes, radio programs, symphony orchestras and newspapers.  To tell this story of terrible deprivation as well as hope, Stamberg interviewed dozens of these Shanghai Jews in order to be able to convey their powerful story.
