Quest: Journeys Through GenerationsSaturday, May 4 | 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM
What if. Maybe. It could be. Where does seeking the truth slide into imagination? These three writers conjure compelling stories of Jewish generations past and present. Michael Levitin writes of a perpetually cuckolded man who seeks wholeness by resolving the mystery of a postcard sent from the Siberian gulag. In a creative nonfiction narrative, German writer Katja Petrowskaja searches not only for her ancestors but their meaning to her and each other. Sarah Stone depicts a loving, dysfunctional half-Jewish family of performers, scientists, and activists who long to wake up the world but must first rescue each other, with a little help (and sometimes hindrance) from the occasional ghost or god.
