Is the pen a lethal weapon?
Anne Roiphe sits at the table with 
Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman

     Grace Church School 
     86 4th Avenue at 11th Street, 2nd Floor

According to Jewish teachings, one of the gravest sins is lashon ha-ra ("the evil tongue"), which involves discrediting a person or saying negative things about a person, even if those negative  things are true. 
Author and journalist Anne Roiphe and Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman will grapple with the challenges of writing about other people's lives (especially in memoir form) which is an important aspect of a free democratic society, and yet often comes into conflict with the Jewish value of lashon ha-ra.

Anne Roiphe has published nine novels and two memoirs, and has contributed essays and reviews to The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, New York Magazine, among others. In 1993, The New York Times described her as "a writer who has never toed a party line, feminist or otherwise."

Tickets are $10 per event or $36 for the series 
(Oct. 17, Nov. 21, Dec. 12 & Jan. 30).
