As a Wexner Heritage Alumni Delegates Council project, Michele Sackheim-Wein is launching a
virtual book salon to further knit together the Wexner Alumni Network
through substantive learning and conversation. Read The Aleppo Codex,by Matti Friedman, and join us for an intimate discussion and Q & A with the author, who will join us from Jerusalem for this discussion on Sunday, October 6th, 5 pm ET.
Please email me to receive dial-in instructions, or if you’d like to help organize future book salons – the aim is to do them quarterly.
