For the eighth year in a row, plan to celebrate Jewish Book Month with One Book | One Community, in which a single title is selected for activities across greater Chicago. Spertus Institute proudly spearheads this initiative.
Set in LA, NY, and Budapest (with a stop in Chicago), Memento Park begins with an unexpected call from the Australian consulate. Thus protagonist Mark Santos learns of a valuable painting believed to have been looted from his family during WWII. To recover it, he must repair his strained relationship with his father, unearth his family history, and restore his connection to his own Judaism.
This event is free to the public, but RSVPs are required.
