Authors to Discuss Faith and Devotion
April 17, 2012
A crisis of faith can affect anyone at any time. How one deals with it is the subject of two extraordinary books by authors Jennifer Haigh (Faith) and Dani Shapiro (Devotion). The two authors explore this experience from different literary genres and from different religious perspectives: Shapiro from the Jewish point of view and Haigh from the Catholic standpoint. Haigh and Shapiro will discuss their viewpoints on faith and devotion on Tuesday, April 17 at 7:30pm at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center (333 Nahanton Street) in Newton. Author Tova Mirvis will moderate the discussion. Faith and Devotion is part of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Boston Jewish Book Fair. Ticket price is $8. Discount for JCC members, students and seniors.
