St. Louis Jewish Book Festival Presents Angela Himsel

November 7, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


How does a woman who grew up in rural Indiana as a fundamentalist Christian end up a practicing Jew in New York? Angela Himsel is the seventh of eleven children from a family that belonged to an evangelical branch of Christianity, the Worldwide Church of God. In search of the Holy Spirit, Angela decided at nineteen to study at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem. But instead of strengthening her faith, she was introduced to a thrilling new world. And she began to think that maybe everything she’d been taught was wrong. Those three words–“maybe I’m wrong”–set her on a completely different path, and, ultimately, she found her own form of salvation in the most unexpected place: a mikvah on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Told with warmth, humor, and a multitude of religious and philosophical insights, A River Could Be A Tree traces a seemingly impossible journey of faith, family and friendship.
