James H. Grossmann Memorial
Jewish Book Month Celebration

Jewish Book Month speaks to the mission of our Center; to heighten awareness of one's Jewish identity and enrich our Jewish lives. We have always been "the people of the book," and the celebration of Jewish Book Month gives us a wonderful opportunity to transmit our values to the entire community as well as to future generations. The celebration continues throughout the year with programs featuring Jewish authors and books of Jewish interest.

Don’t Let My Baby Do Rodeo Book Event

In 2014, The New York Times Book Review asked: "Is there room in American fiction for another brilliant young émigré writer? There had better be, because here he is." They were referring to author Boris Fishman who joins us to discuss the themes in his highly acclaimed new book, Don’t Let My Baby Do Rodeo. Born in the former Soviet Union, Fishman knows firsthand what it’s like to make a foreign land home. In his new book, he weaves the immigrant story together with one about adoption and contemplates the mysteries of inheritance and what exactly it means to belong.
 
Fishman is a dynamic speaker you won’t want to miss, whether or not you’ve read the book. Professor of literature Ben Nelson will introduce the author and conclude the evening with a short interview.
