JANE ISENBERG at Temple De Hirsch Sinai

Presented by TEMPLE DE HIRSCH SINAI. If you missed her Elliott Bay appearance last month, here's another opportunity to hear local author Jane Isenberg, whose historical mystery, The Bones and the Book (Oconee Spirit Press), takes an earthquake that happened almost fifty years ago (1965), and lets some intrigues it unburies take readers farther back in time to the diary of a young immigrant Yiddish-speaking woman who had been murdered. "Past and present collide in this complex, compelling historical mystery. Using the classic elements of hidden manuscript and mysterious corpse, the author builds a highly original story that is both deeply Jewish and uniquely American ... the novel deftly explores the mysteries of difference, identity, loneliness, love, betrayal—and family." - Lev Raphael. Free admission. Temple De Hirsch Sinai is at 1511 E. Pike Street. For more information, please see www.tdhs-nw.org.
