The Schwarz-Kurz-Zeller Adult Education Institute, Book Nosh & The Women of Beth El present author Janet Benton Sunday, April 28 2:00 pm
Join us as we host Janet Benton:
Meet! Janet will discuss her award-winning novel Lilli de Jong. Set in Victorian-era Philadelphia, it’s the story of an unwed Quaker mother who will do almost anything to keep her daughter in the face of staggering prejudice. From rural Germantown to elegant Rittenhouse Square, Benton’s well-researched book opens an authentic window into our local past – and opens our eyes to social inequalities still with us today. The book is replete with heart-tugging emotion, wisdom, and Jewish values.
Greet! Book signing with Janet Benton will follow program. Books will be available for purchase through the author on the day of the program.
Eat! Sample special treats from Lilli de Jong’s garden and old Philadelphia.
Donate! Bring gently-used bras and sealed women’s sanitary products for The Women of Beth El’s “For the Girls”campaign to support homeless and dislocated women. (Pink donation boxes can be found in Beth El lobby).
