Knish: A Call to Consciousness with author Laura Silver
Join us for a lively, interactive program to test your knish I.Q. You're invited to share recollections, ruminations and recipes. Laura Silver's book Knish: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food is hailed by the New York Times as ""a whimsical, mouthwatering and edifying odyssey through New York neighborhoods and beyond." The Knish may look like a simple lump of potatoes wrapped in dough, but it is the quintessential Ashkenazi Jewish comfort food. Round or square, fried or baked, the knish is packed with stories of struggle, survival and triumph. The humble pastry has links to Eleanor Roosevelt, American politics, feminism and the hills of Western Massachusetts. We'll talk about history and how the knish can help us make modern-day connections across cultures and communities. Knish: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food is available to purchase at The Bookstore in Lenox, MA, please visit the website.
