October 13 at 7:00 p.m. - Meet Sasha Abramsky, author of The House of Twenty Thousand Books
Join us as Sasha Abramsky shares his family story as he presents his book, The House of Twenty Thousand Books. His grandfather, Chimen Abramsky, was an extraordinary bibliophile who amassed a vast collection of socialist literature and Jewish history, and had hosted epic gatherings in his house that brought together many of the age’s greatest thinkers. Sasha takes the reader on a wondrous journey, from the vanished worlds of Eastern European Jewry to the present.
