Join us as Noam Sienna reads selected stories from his groundbreaking collection of queer Jewish texts. There will be a Q-and-A after the reading, followed by a book signing.
About the book: Spanning two millennia, five continents, and containing translations from fifteen languages, A Rainbow Thread is a new, definitive anthology for queer Jewish history. Through an unprecedented collection of texts, it bears witness to the many ways in which queer and Jewish identities intersect, resurrecting a legacy that many have assumed cannot or does not exist.
About the author: Noam Sienna is a Jewish educator, artist, and doctoral student at the University of Minnesota. His academic work has explored art, magic, and gender and sexuality, particularly among Jewish communities of the Islamic world. He has taught about Jewish culture and history at academic and community venues around the world.
