Author Bonnie Anderson
The Rabbi's Atheist Daughter
Talk and Book Signing

Throughout the 1850s, Ernestine Rose was one of the best-known female activists in the United States, more famous than either Elizabeth Cady Stanton or Susan B. Anthony. Rose worked not only for feminism, but also for free thought and abolition. As a Jewish, atheist, foreign woman who left the United States in 1869 - Ernestine Rose was written out of American history. Her evolution from a traditional Polish-Jewish childhood to an adult life as a radical international feminist and freethinker deserves to be remembered. 

The Rabbi’s Atheist Daughter/ Ernestine Rose/ International Feminist Pioneer Oxford University Press) is Bonnie S. Anderson’s fourth book on women’s history.  One of the pioneers of the field, Anderson taught history and women’s studies at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York for over thirty years.  Anderson gives speeches on Rose, women’s movements, international feminism, the history of sexuality, and women’s issues today. Like her subjects, she combines writing with activism.

Books will be available for purchase at the event.

                          

Registration suggested by calling 466-8055, ext. 208, or register online beginning January 2.

Drumming Away Stress with Robert Lawrence Friedman

Join us for a unique and powerful, yet playful stress management program that combines energetic, percussive drumming with calming guided imagery exercises to provide a lasting and powerful release of stress.  Participants leave this program with the unique experience of feeling highly energized, yet centered and relaxed.

No knowledge of drumming is necessary.  All drums provided. 

Robert Lawrence Friedman is the author of the books, The Healing Power of the Drum -- A Psychotherapist Explores the Healing Power of Rhythm (White Cliffs Media, 2000) and the Healing Power of the Drum – A Journey of Rhythm and Stories (Pathway Books 2010).  He has appeared on national television programs, including the Discovery Health Channel program.
