The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires presents: Knosh & Knowledge, with
Rachel Kadish on The Weight of Ink.

Knosh & Knowledge hosts Rachel Kadish, whose 2017 novel The Weight of Ink last year won a National Jewish Book Award for best book club offering. She will be talking about the path she took in researching and writing this acclaimed historical novel that shifts back and forth from 1660s England to present day.

The Weight of Ink tells the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Valasquez, and emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history.

After the talk, Rachel will be on hand to answer questions and to sign copies of her book.

Advanced lunch reservations required by Thursday, March 22 before noon by calling 413-442-4360, ext. 10 or [email protected]
