Meet Author Andrea Kott via ZOOM (Registration)

Meet Author Andrea Kott via ZOOM (Registration)

Wednesday, May 12

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Author Andrea Kott will offers readings of her personal memoir, “Salt on a Robin’s Tail: An Unlikely Jewish Journey Through Childhood, Forgiveness, and Hope

Register with dobref@wlsmail.org to get the Zoom link – please indicate you are registering for this program in the email.

Andrea Kott thought of herself as “the welfare Jew.”

The daughter of a single mother whose depression and drinking pitched them into poverty, her stormy life looked nothing like that of the Jewish kids she knew: It defied every stereotype she associated with being Jewish—having an intact family and material wealth, and becoming a bat mitzvah.

Alienated and ashamed, Kott felt ineligible to be Jewish, yet hungered for connection to the tradition and to God. It took a near-fatal accident, her mother’s death, marriage and motherhood, and losing a beloved brother for her to find her Jewish home.

Salt on a Robin’s Tail: An Unlikely Jewish Journey Through Childhood, Forgiveness, and Hope is a true story of love and loss, struggle and survival, despair and possibility. It shatters stereotypes and inspires reconciliation with the painful past.
