Nashville Jewish Book Series Hosts Free Events

Join the Nashville Jewish Book Series for two FREE virtual events this March. On Thursday, March 2 at 7pm Author Stephen Mills will join us to talk about his powerful memoir of childhood sexual abuse and the experienced trauma, Chosen. Stephen will be joined in conversation with the Temple’s Rabbi Shana Goldstein Mackler and Lisa Milam, a forensic social worker at Our Kids. The conversation will focus on Stephen’s individual experiences, in addition to how we as a community and society can begin to have the difficult conversations surrounding sexual abuse.

Do you love food? How about Italian food? Benedetta Jasmine Guetta, food writer, photographer, and author of Cooking Alla Giudia will join the Nashville Jewish Book Series in conversation on Thursday, March 23 at 7PM. Benedetta has been spreading the word about the marvels of Italian Jewish food in Italy and abroad and will share with us how some of Italy’s most delectable dishes are Jewish in origin. Her work has been featured in Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, Elle à Table, Saveur, and Tablet.

Both conversations will be moderated by Natasha Senjanovic, NJBS committee member as well as an award-winning journalist who covers vulnerable populations and spent 16 years living and eating her way through Italy.
