Unpacking the Book: Jewish Writers in Conversation: Confronting Conformity

Hear authors Abby Stein and Goldie Goldbloom in a conversation with Stephanie Butnick, Tablet Magazine, and the Unorthodox podcast.

About this Event

Join authors Abby Stein (Becoming Eve), and Goldie Goldbloom (On Division) for a conversation with Stephanie Butnick, Tablet Magazine, exploring what happens to community members who don’t quite fit in. In Ultra-Orthodox Hasidic communities, maintaining norms to protect a family’s reputation or status is often of high importance, leaving little room for questioning or individual differences. Through a memoir and novel, the authors explore the struggle to keep secrets and the impact of the decision to be true to oneself, even when doing so means defying family and friends.

The conversation will be followed by a reception, book sale, and signing. Admission to the event is free and includes an opportunity to visit the galleries on the day of the program. Advance RSVP is required; however early arrival is suggested as space is limited, and entry is not guaranteed.
