Book Club Discussion: Golem Girl: by author Riva Lehrer


March 30, 2022    
7:00 pm

Please join us on March 30 to discuss the memoir Golem Girl by acclaimed portrait artist, educator, and practitioner of extreme consent, Chicago’s own Riva Lehrer. Ms. Lehrer was the featured speaker for Anshe Emet’s celebration of Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month where she read from her book and spoke about her experiences growing up Jewish, queer, and disabled. Facilitated by Brian Grossman and Gabriella Boros on March 30, the discussion will be held in person with access to participate via zoom. As a community, we will come together to react and respond to the humor, insight, and lyrical prose trhough which Ms. Lehrer tells her story.  The memoir offers a powerful story encouraging the reader to imagine a world in which bodies flow among all possible forms of what it is to be human.

The first 18 to register will receive a free copy of the book!
