In Conversation with Dara Horn. YA event
2706 24th St, San Francisco
YALC is honored to host esteemed scholar and author Dara Horn in conversation of her recent, award-winning book People Love Dead Jews. Published in 2021, People Love Dead Jews is a series of essays in which Horn reflects on subjects as far-flung as the international veneration of Anne Frank, the mythology that Jewish family names were changed at Ellis Island, and the blockbuster traveling exhibition Auschwitz. Throughout, she challenges us to confront the reasons why there might be so much fascination with Jewish deaths and so little respect for Jewish lives unfolding in the present.
This exclusive and free afternoon event for Young Adults only (20s-30s) is part of Dara Horn's Scholar in Residency at Congregation Emanu-El.
We will gather at BrewVino SF in the Mission for an interview and Q&A with Dara. Light food and drinks provided. This is an exclusive event with limited space, registration is required.
