Behind the Book: Visiting Author Series with Noam Sienna (Providence, RI)

February 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
Logo of Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island

Join us as Noam Sienna reads selected stories from his groundbreaking collection of queer Jewish texts. There will be a Q-and-A after the reading, followed by a book signing.

Spanning two millennia, five continents, and containing translations from fifteen languages, “A Rainbow Thread” is a new, definitive anthology for queer Jewish history. Through an unprecedented collection of texts, it bears witness to the many ways in which queer and Jewish identities intersect, resurrecting a legacy that many have assumed cannot or does not exist.

This event is made possible by a partnership with the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island’s Community Relations Council.

“Behind the Book” is made possible with generous support from TW Financial Group.
