The Larchmont Historical Society Presents:
March Women in History Month:
Deborah Baker, Author of "THE CONVERT: A Tale of Exile and Extremism" — A Reading and Discussion
The Larchmont Historical Society, in recognition of March Women in History Month, presents a reading and talk with Deborah Baker, author of "THE CONVERT: A Tale of Exile and Extremism." This fascinating book, a finalist for the National Book Award and a Publisher’s Weekly Best Book of the Year, is a biography of Larchmont native, Margaret Marcus. The book explores how a young woman from Larchmont abandons her country and Jewish faith, and chooses to embrace a life of exile in Pakistan, as Maryam Jameelah, a devout Muslim.
Please join us for what will be a thought-provoking afternoon.
Refreshments will be served, and Ms. Baker will be signing books.
The event is free to LHS members, $5 for non-members.
