    Book Talk with Howard Reich

    The Art of Inventing Hope: Intimate Conversations with Elie Wiesel offers an unprecedented, in-depth conversation between the world’s most revered Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, and a son of survivors, Howard Reich. What had started as an interview assignment from the Chicago Tribune quickly evolved into a friendship and a partnership. Here Wiesel – at the end of his life – looks back on his ideas and writings on the Holocaust, synthesizing them in his conversations with Reich. The insights on life, ethics, and memory that Wiesel offers, and Reich illuminates will not only help the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors understand their painful inheritance, but will benefit everyone, young and old. Howard Reich will be interviewed by Alison Pure-Slovin, Midwest Director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center

    Jews of Color in Early America with Author Laura Leibman

    The Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia presents this exclusive author talk with Professor Laura Leibman author of Once We Were Slaves: The Extraordinary Journey of a Multi-Racial Jewish Family. Professor Leibman will share the extraordinary story of a Jewish genealogist from a prominent American family with a Jewish American pedigree going back before the Revolutionary War. She was searching for her grandmother's maternal line, and expected to find wealthy Sephardic Jews. Instead, she found poor, enslaved ancestors whose life stories will upend many of the ideas that we have about ourselves.
