Please note that this program will take place at the Peninsula Jewish Community Center in Foster City.

Panelists will be announced in March.

For many, reading Philip Roth’s The Plot Against America today has taken on a different meaning than when the novel was published in 2004. How does the scenario Roth paints relate to present fears about the status of Jews and other minorities in the United States, and about the strength of American democracy? This event will focus on the factors that make this book so resonant for readers, with a panel of communal leaders and educators reflecting on how the novel relates to challenges in our day.
