Wed. Feb. 13th 5.30-6.30pm. University of Victoria, Engineering and Computer Sciences Bldg. Room 108.
Join Angela Himsel as she discusses her recent memoir about growing up in an apocalyptic fringe religion in Indiana and her journey to Judaism.
Himsel’s seemingly impossible road from childhood cult to a committed Jewish life is traced in and around the major events of the 1970s and 80s with warmth, humor, and a multitude of religious and philosophical insights. A River Could Be a Tree is a fascinating story of struggle, doubt, and finally. Personal fulfillment. Himsel is a freelance writer based in New York. She has an MFA in creative writing from The City College in New York
