Quarantine(ish) Book Talks provide opportunities to come together virtually to explore literature by and/or about Jewish women in conversation with JWA’s CEO, Judith Rosenbaum. Join our upcoming winter series for conversations with authors about books, writing and Jewish storytelling.
Presented in partnership with JewishLIVE.
- Jan. 27: Helene Wecker, author of “The Hidden Palace: A Novel of the Golem and the Jinni,” an enthralling historical epic set in New York City and the Middle East following the explorations of mythical creatures.
- Feb. 3: Ariella Elovic, author of “Cheeky: A Head to Toe Memoir,” a graphic memoir that asks how can the author learn not to see herself as a never-finished DIY project but to accept and even love the physical attributes society taught her to hide?
- Feb. 10: Haviva Ner-David, author of “Hope Valley,” the story of a Jewish Israeli and Palestinian Israeli who form the unlikeliest of friendships, and “Dreaming Against the Current,” the journey from Orthodox Jewish feminist activist to post-denominational inter-spiritual rabbi/minister.
- Feb. 17: Popular middle-grade authors Emily Barth Isler and Aimee Lucido discuss the possibilities and pitfalls opened up by writing for a young audience.
