Brilliant author and captivating speaker Joan Leegant will give a talk at your event and donate a signed copy of Wherever You Go.
She is the winner of the PEN/New England Book Award, the Wallant Award, and finalist for the National Jewish Book Award.
In a sweeping, beautifully written story, Joan Leegant weaves together three lives caught in the grip of a volatile and uncompromising faith. Yona Stern has traveled to Jerusalem from New York to make amends with her sister, a stoic mother of five dedicated to the hard-line West Bank settlement cause. Mark Greenglass, a gifted Talmud teacher and a former drug dealer saved by religion, has lost his passion and wonders if he’s done with God. Enter Aaron Blinder, an unstable college dropout with a history of failure who finds a home on the radical fringe of Israeli society. Emotionally gripping, timely and prophetic, Wherever You Go tells the story of three Americans in Israel and the attractions -- and dangers -- of Jewish extremism and its threat to the modern, democratic state.
“It is sometimes hard to believe Leegant is not an Israeli native; the scenes she describes are realistically and intimately Israeli.” Jerusalem Report
