Unpack­ing the Book: Bor­ders of Home
Hear authors Esther Safran Foer and Kei­th Gessen in a con­ver­sa­tion with Stephanie But­nick, Tablet Magazine

In the twen­ty-first cen­tu­ry, it’s become eas­i­er than ever to explore one’s fam­i­ly his­to­ry — but even with an increased abil­i­ty to trav­el, ana­lyze DNA, and explore archival mate­r­i­al, how close can we real­ly get to under­stand­ing our ori­gins, and why they mat­ter? Authors Esther Safran Foer (I Want You to Know We’re Still Here) and Kei­th Gessen (A Ter­ri­ble Coun­try) recount jour­neys to their ances­tral homes of Ukraine and Rus­sia, respec­tive­ly, as they grap­ple with how the past informs our under­stand­ing of self and home. Join us as we explore a cen­tu­ry of per­son­al Jew­ish his­to­ry in a con­ver­sa­tion mod­er­at­ed by Tablet Mag­a­zine​’s Stephanie Butnick.
