Award-winning novelist Dara Horn will discuss her book, People Love Dead Jews: Reports from a Haunted Present. In this remarkable collection of essays, Horn presents a unique perspective on modern-day antisemitism. Drawing on her extensive research, she confronts people’s fascination with long-dead Jews and explores the benign reverence given to past horrors. The feel-good stories people share about dead Jews make it easy to dismiss the here-and-now targeting of living Jews. This book challenges us to get a little uncomfortable, change our understanding and acknowledge the deeper implications of antisemitism in our world.
