Virtual Author Event on Zoom

 

“Esther Safran Foer is a force of nature: a leader of the Jewish people, the matriarch of America’s leading literary family (her son Jonathan Safran Foer authored Everything Is Illuminated), an eloquent defender of the proposition that memory matters. And now, a riveting memoirist.”—Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic.  I Want You to Know We’re Still Here is the poignant and deeply moving story not only of Esther’s journey but of four generations living in the shadow of the Holocaust. They are four generations of survivors, storytellers, and memory keepers, determined not just to keep the past alive but to imbue the present with life and more life.                                       

 

Esther Safran Foer was the CEO of Sixth & I, a renowned cen­ter for arts, ideas, and reli­gion in Wash­ing­ton, DC.

This event is presented in collaboration with the the Jewish Book Council. Esther will present her book and answer questions. To purchase books in advance, our bookstore partners online: Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW) and Page 1 Books (5850 Eubank Blvd NE). 

Tickets are $8 for JCC Members and $10 for Non-Members.
