Wednesday, February 13, 5:30 – 6:30 pm — Angela Himsel launches her memoir, “A River Could Be a Tree” on Wednesday, February 13, 5:30 – 6:30 pm, UVic Engineering and Computer Sciences Building, Room 108.  Admission is free and open to the public.

Join Angela as she discusses her recent memoir about growing up in an apocalyptic fringe religion in Indiana and her journey to Judaism. Himsel’s seemingly impossible road from childhood cult to a committed Jewish life is traced in and around the major events of the 1970s and 80s with warmth, humor, and a multitude of religious and philosophical insights. A River Could Be a Tree is a fascinating story of struggle, doubt, and finally, personal fulfillment. Himsel is a freelance writer based in New York City. She has an MFA in creative writing from The City College of New York.
