This Terrible True Thing

Jenny Laden

6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at Rodeph Shalom

Hear from Jenny Laden, a life-long RS member who will discuss writing her debut novel, This Terrible True Thing, as quoted by Rabbi Maderer during Shabbat services. Jenny will discuss learning a new craft to tell her story and the larger story of AIDS in the 1990’s using drawings and poetry alongside prose. She is thrilled to be returning to the RS Community Room where she wrote much of her book while her daughter was in Berkman Mercaz Limud on Sundays! Book purchase and signings available after the talk. Dinner will be provided.

Register here.
