Please join us for the North American launch of The Slaughterman’s Daughter, a brilliant new novel by Yaniv Iczkovits. This inventive tale of two sisters, set in late 19th-century Russia, was praised by David Grossman for its “boundless imagination, wit, and panache.”
Iczkovits will be joined by Gal Beckerman, author of When They Come for Us, We'll Be Gone: The Epic Struggle to Save Soviet Jewry, who will share a historical perspective.
This program will be moderated by award-winning journalist and author Sandee Brawarsky.
