Tova Mirvis will lead a discussion of The Book of Separation, A Memoir on Zoom at Congregation B'nai Jacob. The book is a New York Times book Review Editors' Choice and one of Jewish Week's "Books to Read This Fall"
"Tova Mirvis has already established herself as a first-rate novelist with The Ladies Auxiliary, The Outside World, and Visible City. With The Book of Separation: A Memoir, Mirvis shifts genres, reveals some of the autobiographical germs of her fiction, and compellingly chronicles the process of separating from Orthodoxy...The respect for intra-Jewish difference that Mirvis models for her children—and for readers—is a precious gift to the Jewish literary world...Beautiful and poignant."
