A JEWISH WRITER'S REFLECTION ON WRITING: ELIE WIESEL
Dr. David Patterson, University of Texas at Dallas
"At times reminiscent of the writings of Elie Wiesel, (his) eloquent testimony to Jewish faith is one of the best available." (Library Journal)
Dr. Patterson brings together the disciplines of philosophy, theology, Jewish thought, and Jewish mysticism in works that shed light on the origins of religiously sanctioned violence and genocide. He is the Hillel A. Feinberg Chair in Holocaust Studies at UT Dallas.
Presented as part of the 23rd Annual Jewish American and Holocaust Literature Conference. Public programs are underwritten by The Betsy - South Beach, The Knight Foundation, and PG Family Foundation for 2017. Public programs are free, but you must register to attend.
