Nancy Kalikow Maxwell Book Presentation: Typically Jewish

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 26 Nisan 5779

6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Catered Falafel, Humus, Greek Salad dinner at 6pm, provided by Kenny Trobman of The Gyro Spot ($10/person). 

Presentation begins at 7 pm and is free.

We are delighted to have Barnett Kalikow's cousin come to Olympia to speak about her new book, Typically Jewish, just released in March 2019. The book humorously describes "what it feels like to be Jewish" in eight chapters: Worrying, Kvelling, Dying, Noshing, Laughing, Detecting, Dwelling and Joining. She addresses such questions as:

  • Is laughter essential to Jewish identity?
  • Do Jews possess special radar for recogniz­ing members of the tribe?
  • Since Jews live longer and make love more often, why don’t more people join the tribe?

Nancy Kalikow Maxwell is a librarian, an award-winning writer, and a frequent contributor to Jewish media. She is the author of six books and the creator of funny cards for Hallmark’s Tree of Life Jewish card line.
