The Sarajevo Haggadah
For any manmade thing to survive for over five hundred years is an amazing. For it to be a Jewish book in Europe is a miracle.
Geraldine Brooks tells the story of such a miraculous happening in People of the Book. Join the Hudson Park Book Discussion Saturday, July 10, from 10:30 to 12 noon and we will discuss the fascinating journey of this book, an illuminated Haggadah, a prayer book used during Passover. You can get a copy at Hudson Park, or most branches of The New York Public Library.
By the way, one of the book's heroes is a librarian.
