Go behind the stories and peer inside the archives at this new bi-monthly book discussion, led by Lauren Gilbert, Senior Manager for Public Services at the Center for Jewish History. The first session will feature a discussion of The Promised Land by Mary Antin, a celebrated 1912 memoir by a Russian-Jewish immigrant to Boston, followed by a show and tell from the Mary Antin papers as well as other archival materials related to the immigrant Jewish experience held by the American Jewish Historical Society.

Participants will need to obtain their own copy to read before the discussion. The book is available as a free download via Amazon.com, Project Gutenberg (Gutenberg.com) or NYPL. Inexpensive used copies are available for purchase via Amazon.com or abebooks.com.

Light refreshments will be served.
