Marra B. Gad with Jewish Book Festival

November 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$20

An unforgettable debut memoir about a mixed-race Jew­ish woman who, after fifteen years of estrange­ment from her racist great-aunt, helps bring her home when Alzheimer’s strikes. The Col­or of Love explores the idea of yerusha, which means​ “inher­i­tance” in Yid­dish. At turns heart-wrench­ing and heart­warm­ing, this is a sto­ry about what you inher­it from your fam­i­ly — iden­ti­ty, dis­ease, melanin, hate, and most pow­er­ful of all, love. With hon­esty, insight, and warmth, Mar­ra B. Gad has writ­ten an inspirational, mov­ing, chron­i­cle prov­ing that, when all else is stripped away, love is where we return, and love is always our great­est inheritance.
