Book Club: 'The Weight of Ink'

Wednesday, December 2, 2020 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Virtual Event

Join the University Libraries to discuss our December virtual book club selection, "The Weight of Ink" by Rachel Kadish.

Set in London in the 1660s and the early twenty-first century, "The Weight of Ink" is the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Velasquez, an emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history.

Book Club will begin with a virtual showcase of rare books from the Shimeon Brisman Collection in Jewish Studies, followed by a discussion of the book.

Free and open to all. Preregistration is required.
