Join Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg for her official book launch of her new novel, featuring a special Havdalah Service led by Susan Elkins and Jack Winerock, a 10-minute Jewish service (singing, and awakening our senses) to usher in the new week, followed by a vibrant reading from the novel. We’ll conclude with a book signing, delicious Jewish desserts and savories to enjoy together, and time to visit and make new friends. The reception will feature dishes from novel (which includes 35 pages of recipes), including pies from Ladybird Diner, and appetizers and desserts from Nancy O’Connor’s "Rolling Prairie Cookbook", Jayni and Frank Carey’s "The New Kansas Cookbook", and Janet Majure’s "Come Into My Kitchen."
Please also join us at the companion writing workshop, “Writing the Tree of Life: Midrash and Personal Mythology To Re-Vision Our Lives” 4-6 p.m. at the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St. Sponsored by the Lawrence Public Library, Lawrence Jewish Community Congregation, The Merc Co+op, and Raven Book Store.
All locations are accessible.
