Hear authors Josh Gondelman and Rebecca Dinerstein Knight in a con­ver­sa­tion with Stephanie But­nick, Tablet Magazine.

About this Event

Actions and intentions—which mat­ter more? And what hap­pens when your best inten­tions have unin­tend­ed results? These questions have long been debated in Jewish texts, and author and come­di­an Josh Gondel­man (Nice Try: Sto­ries of Best Inten­tions and Mixed Results) and author Rebec­ca Din­er­stein Knight (Hex) bring them to the present day. Together with Tablet Mag­a­zine​’s Stephanie But­nick, they dis­cuss the fun­ny, the unnerving, and the often quite seri­ous busi­ness of being human today, and how they explore the sub­ject in their writing.

The conversation will be followed by a reception, book sale, and signing. Admission to the event is free, and includes an opportunity to visit the galleries on the day of the program. Advance RSVP is required; however early arrival is suggested as space is limited, and entry is not guaranteed.

Co-presented with the Jewish Book Council, in partnership with Tablet Magazine.
