A mystery novelist community organizer and a poet-rabbi walk into a bar? Join Rachel Sharona Lewis and Mónica Gomery for a conversation about writing at the intersection of Judaism and queerness. The authors will reflect together on the creative process, their latest projects, and the shared themes that run between their work. What stories feel important to tell, as we write new paths toward the world we dream of? Lewis and Gomery will read from their recent books, and explore this and other questions.
