Day After Night

When: Sun., May 23, 2 p.m. 2010

Spertus welcomes Anita Diamant—bestselling author of the word-of-mouth sensation The Red Tent—to Chicago to discuss her newest novel, Day After Night. Day After Night is based on the true story of the October 1945 rescue of more than 200 prisoners from the British-run Atlit internment camp for “illegal” immigrants near the Mediterranean coast north of Haifa. Diamant will share her research and exploration of Day After Night’s subjects. Publisher's Weekly calls Anita Diamant’s Day After Night “compulsively readable” and the Washington Post says it “offers all the satisfactions found in her previous works.”

Price: Tickets are $18, $10 for members, $8 for students
