And You Shall Know Us by The Trail of Our Vinyl:
Music, Memory, and the Politics of Jewish American History
Wednesday, May 20, 7:30 pm
ADMISSION: $10 General; $8 Members; $5 Full-Time Students
For more than eight years, cultural critic and USC professor Josh Kun,
along with co-author Roger Bennett, scoured the nation’s thrift stores
and garage sales for forgotten Jewish musical treasures. Their book
about the quest features the covers of more than 500 albums by a range
of artists, from Yosele Rosenblatt to Barbra Streisand and everyone in
between. Join Kun for a lively multimedia lecture about some of his
favorite finds and the album cover’s role in the way Jewish American
history gets told. A book signing follows the program.
Light dinner fare and beverages, including beer and wine, are available
for purchase before the program.
