Meet the Author Howard Reich of The Art of Inventing Hope: Intimate Conversations with Elie Wiesel

Temple Beth Israel (3601 W. Dempster St., Skokie) welcomes author Howard Reich to discuss his new book The Art of Inventing Hope: Intimate Conversations with Elie Wiesel, Sunday, May 19, 2019, 10:00 a.m. Autographed books will be available for sale. There is no charge to attend this event and the community is welcome. For more information call TBI at 847-675-0951 or visit http://www.tbiskokie.org.

The Art of Inventing Hope offers an unprecedented, in-depth conversation between the world’s most revered Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, and a son of survivors, Howard Reich.

During the last four years of Wiesel’s life, he met frequently with Reich in New York, Chicago and Florida – and spoke often on the phone – to discuss the subject that linked them: both Wiesel’s and Reich’s fathers were liberated from Buchenwald death camp on April 11, 1945.

A book discussion follows the presentation.
