One Book, One Hadassah:Live with Jean Hanff Korelitz, author of The Latecomer. Hadassah MagazineExecutive Editor Lisa Hostein interviews New York Times best-selling author of The Plot, Jean Hanff Korelitz, about her latest novel, The Latecomer. It's the story of the dysfunctional Oppenheimers, a wealthy New York Jewish family struggling under the weight of secrets. Witty and multifaceted, The Latecomer explores betrayal and sexuality, religion and art, sibling bonds and rivalry—but most of all it is an examination of what makes a family—genes, birth, cohabitation? Or is it love? Wednesday, December 7, 7 pm ET.
Join the fight to protect reproductive health: In the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and without federal protections for choice, Hadassah’s work at the state level is more important than ever.
