Today, we need feminist fiction more than ever—to connect us to our past and help us dream about a feminist future.
Join the New Synagogue Project and Lilith magazine for an intimate conversation about Lilith’s groundbreaking Jewish feminist short fiction collection, Frankly Feminist: Short Stories by Jewish Women, with Susan Weidman Schneider, Lilith’s Editor in Chief. This collection showcases a wide range of stories offering variegated cultures and contexts and points of view: Persian Jews; a Biblical matriarch; an Ethiopian mother in modern Israel; suburban American teens; Eastern European academics; a sexual questioner; a Jew by choice; a new immigrant escaping her Lower East Side sweatshop; a Black Jewish marcher for justice; in Vichy France, a toddler’s mother hiding out; and more.
Look forward to refreshments and provocative questions about how we tell our stories. This is an in-person event.
