On My Night Stand

This weekend I’m reading Elizabeth Rosner’s Survivor Café: The Legacy of Trauma and the Labyrinth of Memory (Counterpoint, 2017). I’m a big fan of memoir in general. Rosner addresses a return visit to Buchenwald with her father, who survived the camp as a teenager. More broadly, she addresses the intergenerational legacy of the Holocaust.



What’s on your night stand this week?

  1. I also enjoy memoirs. Currently on the top of the nightstand book pile is, The Skeptic and the Rabbi: Falling in Love with Faith by Judy Gruen (She Writes Press, 2017)
