Tuesday, October 20, 2020 2 Cheshvan 5781

7:00 PM - 8:00 PMZoom-Advance Registration Required

CBI Library Committee presents our first Zoom Congregation Read:

The Plot Against America by Philip Roth

Philip Roth’s best selling alternate history novel where Franklin D. Roosevelt loses the 1940 presidential election to celebrity aviator Charles A. Lindberg.

Moderating our discussion will be the host of NPR’s Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me (and brother of CBI’s beloved Rabbi), Peter Sagal!

Earlier this year, HBO broadcast a six-part miniseries adaptation of Philip Roth’s “The Plot Against America,” written and produced by David Simon, creator of “The Wire” and “The Deuce.”  At the same time, they released a podcast about the show, featuring Mr. Simon in conversation with Mr. Sagal. At this event, Mr. Sagal will moderate a discussion about the novel, the miniseries, the history on which both are based, and its relation to our current moment.  

Advance registration is required. Please register at the link below in order to be sent the Zoom link for the program prior to the event.
