ABOUT ROBIN MAYER STEIN
A native New Yorker, Robin Mayer Stein wrote and illustrated her first book at the age of five. She grew up across the street from the Jackson Heights public library — a place she loved. At Queens College, she majored in English Literature and Creative Writing. She moved to Massachusetts to attend Boston University School of Law.
After practicing environmental and consumer law, she returned to her first love— writing. Her work has appeared in The Paterson Review, The New Renaissance, Home Planet News, The American Poetry Review and The Journal of Expressive Writing.
She teaches Poetry, Fiction and Memoir Workshops for adults at venues in the Boston area including The Cambridge Homes, Fox Hill Village, Maplewood at Weston and the Newton Free Library.
Her book, My Two Cities: A Story of Immigration and Inspiration, tells the story of Hanni Myers who came to this country from Vienna in 1938 at the start of World War II. The book is designed for children, teens and adults. Robin offers Zoom programs for schools, libraries, senior centers and places of worship about adapting to a new country, combating prejudice and preserving family histories.
