Kathleen B. Jones, Professor Emerita, SDSU will sign and discuss her first historical novel. Inspired by a decade of research, her new book explores the joys and pitfalls faced by medieval woman artists and a contemporary academic who becomes obsessed with medieval books. Kathy Jones was the chair of the first women’s studies program in the nation at SDSU and acting dean of the College of Arts and Letters. This is her seventh book.
Elizabeth Schwartz is best known as the singer for Hot Pstromi, the internationally acclaimed Klezmer band with her husband musicologist Yale Strom. Her new book, The Sweet Fragrance of Life is a collection of feminist shtetl horror tales. “These are thrilling and dark stories, but also political reflections about racism and misogyny. A must-read in English and Yiddish.” This event is cosponsored by Yiddishland California.
