Event Description:

Join Anita Diamant, renowned author of the bestseller The Red Tent (1997), for a discussion of how historical views of the body have shaped or limited the way women understand themselves.

Diamant will talk about the ways that the strengths and vulnerabilities of the female body shape women’s experience, identity, freedom, and spirituality. She will read short selections from her novels and following this, Rabbi Sandy Sasso will invite questions and comments from participants. This conversation will lead to further discussion on the sacredness of one's body and the role it plays in our lives beyond our physical being. A book sale and signing will follow.

Presented by Congregation Beth-El ZedeckIUPUI, Women's Studies Program of the IU School of Liberal Arts; and Writers’ Center of Indiana. Questions? Call 317-253-3441 or email
