My Memoirs Made Me Jewish: Prof. Nancy K. Miller

7:30PM - 9:00PM  

The Ernest F. Hollings Library at Thomas Cooper Library 1322 Greene St.
Columbia, SC

A decade after her father’s death, 2014 Solomon-Tenenbaum lecturer Nancy K. Miller learned that her father’s mother had bought a small parcel of land in Palestine during the British Mandate. This surprising revelation led Miller to discover how entangled her family roots were with the massive migration of Jews to the United States in the early twentieth century. That was just the beginning.

Join us for an evening with scholar and memoirist Nancy K. Miller as she explains how her personal history--and writing about it--enabled her to understand her Jewish identity in ways unknown to her before. Guests are invited to join the author for coffee and dessert after the lecturer and for book signing.

Parking available in the Bull Street Garage ($1 an hour).
