What Makes a Book Jewish

by Marilyn Cooper

The question of what makes a book inherently Jewish is a topic that has long fascinated Marilyn Cooper, the culture editor of Moment Magazine (http://www.momentmag.com/), where she is also manager of the book section. Marilyn will share her interests in this question with Leisure World residents in a lecture and discussion sponsored by the Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at 2 pm on July 13, 2017 in the Baltimore Room of Club House I.  There is no cost for the lecture, but residents must register in advance with E&R. Refreshments will be served and Marilyn will stay around during that time to chat with anyone who wishes.


During the program, Marilyn will use a series of questions to stimulate and lead a discussion about Jewish books, famous Jewish writers and the nooks that shaped them.  She will share stories about her interviews with authors such as Carl Bernstein, Cynthia Ozick, and Joyce Carol Oates. (Some of these interviews are discussed in a recent article Marilyn wrote – see: https://goo.gl/HVqfBS.)
