Book Talk and Nosh with Laura Silver.
Join the world’s leading knish expert and author Laura Silver for a lively talk about her seven-year, three-continent quest for traces of the humble hunk of stuffed dough with strong ties to the Lower East Side. Sholom Aleichem, I.B. Singer and Gussie Schwebel, the courageous knish maker of East Houston Street, all figure in this savory and heartwarming lecture. Laura Silver is the award-winning author of Knish: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food (Brandeis, 2014), which the New York Times called “whimsical mouthwatering, and edifying.” And what would a talk about knishes be without some delicious samples? Enjoy potato, sweet potato, kasha, and more – from nearby Yonah Schimmel, of course.
