"A Jew for Luck" - special book launch in Montreal: #general

Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

Thursday, October 16, 7:00 - 9:00pm at:
Librarie Drawn & Quarterly
211 Bernard Ouest, Montreal, Quebec H2T 2K5
https://www.facebook.com/events/732469186789449/

In Poland today, "Lucky Jews" outnumber Polish Jews. Figurines and images
of Jews holding money have proliferated in Poland with the country's
transition to capitalism. These good luck charms hang in homes and sit by cash
registers in shops and restaurants across the country. By exploring what
Jewish figurines mean to those who make and buy them, Lucky Jews offers a
provocative perspective on the place of Jews in Polish consciousness today.

Shtetl Montreal [http://shtetlmontreal.com/] host Tamara Kramer will talk
with anthropologist and curator Erica Lehrer her book "Lucky Jews," which
grew out of her 2013 exhibit in Krakow of Polish-made Jewish figurines.
As well, the film "A Jew for Luck" (24 min., English & Polish with subtitles)
by Polish director Paulina Fiejdasz will be shown.
