Event Details

Description

This presentation is part of the MARJCC’s complimentary Meet the Author Jewish Book Series presented in partnership with Chabad Chayil, Mishkan Miami of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, and Temple Sinai of North Dade.

The central character in The Corset Maker is inspired by the author’s mother’s life, Dora Libeskind, and portrayed through the eyes of Rifka Berg, a young Orthodox Jewish girl who rebels against her family. With its beginning in 1930 Warsaw, the story, spanning several decades, takes Rifka from her native Poland to countries that include France, Palestine, and Spain—in a journey of self-discovery and survival.

Prior to The Corset Maker, Berkovits, a scientist, educator, and conservationist, has published two memoirs–In the Unlikeliest of Places: How Nachman Libeskind Survived the Nazis, Gulags and Soviet Communism and Confessions of An Accidental Zoo Curator, and has penned a poetry book, Erythra Thalassa: Brain Disputed.

Light refreshments will be served at the program, and at its conclusion, books will be available for purchase and signing by the author.

The Meet the Author Jewish Books Series is made possible, in part, “With the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners” and the Florida Division of Arts and Culture.
