Spring 2024 Book Salons

For our Spring 2024 Book Salon event series, authors from our community present their new works and share insights and lives on their writing process in conversation with Rabbi Jessica Zimmerman Graf and Rabbi George Altshuler. Refreshments provided. Registration encouraged. In person only. 

Thurs, May 2, 7 pm: Yuliya Patsay:  Irreverent, nostalgic and vulnerable, Until the Last Pickle, is a memoir replete with remembrances, anecdotes, and exactly 18 recipes. It’s an exploration of identity and belonging — at once, deeply personal and broadly relatable — told through the lens of one family’s “totally average” immigration journey.

Weds, May 22, 7 pm: Erin Gordon: A battle cry against unchecked abuse of power and a woman’s misplaced shame, Erin's latest book, Look What You Made Me Do is a memoir of Gordon’s first year as a lawyer and an unflinching first-person account of a legal and human drama about the all-too-familiar story of gender discrimination and toxic power. 

Thurs, June 6, 7 pm: David Perlstein will discuss his two newest books, Taking Stock, an absorbing glimpse of a recent widower taking stock of the achievements and betrayals marking his wide range of relationships and The Short (Pun Intended) Redemptive Life of Little Ned, a page-turning journey through the early twentieth century, as three children of poor Jewish families stagger beneath the grueling promise of the American Dream.
