Writers Make the Best Detectives

Writers Make the Best Detectives

Unpacking the Book: Jewish Writers in Conversation

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's "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.

With wine and refreshments, a book sale and signing, and the opportunity to visit the Jewish Museum galleries on the day of the program.

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