Writers Make the Best Detectives

Unpacking the Book: Jewish Writers in Conversation


Thursday, June 14, 2018
7 – 8:30 pm
Scheuer Auditorium

The Saul and Gladys Gwirtzman Lecture

Come along for the journey as writers time travel across three hundred years of history, from London and Paris to New York, to uncover the lost stories—and people—of a scattered post-Inquisition and post-Holocaust world. In a discussion moderated by Stephanie Butnick of Tablet Magazine/Unorthodox podcast, authors Rachel Kadish, The Weight of Ink, and Lisa Moses Leff, The Archive Thief, unravel the meaning behind ancient texts, piece together mysteries, and reveal the power of distance in the pursuit of truth.

Co-presented with the Jewish Book Council, in partnership with Tablet Magazine.

Free with Pay-What-You-Wish Admission, RSVP Required
