Book Club: The Crooked Mirror


On Sunday, May 24, 2015 at 10am, our Book Club meets again to discuss The Crooked Mirror: A Memoir of Polish-Jewish Reconciliation, by Louise Steinman

A memoir by a Los Angeles Jewish woman who traveled to Poland over a decade to research her family roots and met contemporary Poles who are trying to preserve their country’s Jewish heritage in the post-Communist era and come to terms with its difficult past. Those who heard the author speak at BCC in February got a taste of her passion for the subject.

Earlier this year, Louise Steinman visited BCC and read from her book. Read more about the event here
