People of the Book Club - The Flight Portfolio
Go behind the stories and peer inside the archives at our bi-monthly book discussion, led by Lauren Gilbert, Senior Manager for Public Services at the Center for Jewish History. This session will feature a discussion of The Flight Portfolio by Julie Orringer, a work of historical fiction about American journalist Varian Frys attempts to rescue artists and intellectuals during the Nazi occupation of France, followed by a show and tell of documents and artworks from the Centers collections that are connected to the historical figures in the book.
Participants will need to obtain their own copy to read before the discussion.
Light refreshments will be served.
