This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday May 11

11:00 AM  –  1:30 PM

Bring your lunch and enjoy a special brown bag luncheon with Anna Salton Eisen, daughter of a Holocaust survivor and the author of Pillar of Salt.  Eisen will chat with Friends of the Boniuk Library about her book. Copies of the book will be on sale in the museum store. Get your copy signed in the library after lunch. 


On January 15, Anna Salton Eisen watched as four members of Congregation Beth Israel, the synagogue she helped found in 1998, were held hostage for 11 hours. This was not the first time Eisen had close ties to an antisemitic tragedy—her parents are both Holocaust survivors and her son attended the University of Virginia where Charlottesville’s “Unite the Right” rally occurred—but the attack strengthened her conviction that “the Holocaust itself was not enough to end antisemitism.”



The library will provide coffee, tea, soda, and water.
