Laura SilverThe Knish with Panache and Nosh

Sunday, June 19th at 2:00pm

Our Talk and Tea series returns on Father's Day with Laura Silver and her book, Knish: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food. Ms. Silver authored a witty and loving book on her globe-trotting efforts to trace the origins of the knish. She will talk about her research and read excerpts from her book. A knish sampling follows the presentation, served with egg creams and Betty's Zip (our house punch).

Laura Silver is a native New Yorker and an award-winning journalist whose writing on food and culture has appeared in the New York Times, the Forward, the Jerusalem Report and on NPR.

Admission: $5 and $4 for members.

This program made possible in part with support from Poets and Writers.
