Conversations at the JCC: Isabel Wilkerson
Join us for Conversations at the JCC for a conversation between Abigail Pogrebin and Isabel Wilkerson, the author of Caste: the Origins of our Discontents. In her latest book, named the #1 Nonfiction Book of the Year by Time, the best-selling author of The Warmth of Other Suns examines the caste system that has shaped America, and shows how our lives today are still defined by a hierarchy of human divisions.
Tickets are $10 for JCC members, and $15 for non-members. BJ members are invited to use the code BJCASTE at checkout to get the member price.
