BAS Literary Series: "A River Could be a Tree" with author Angela Himsel


Join us as author Angela Himsel reads from her memoir, A River Could be a Tree.

How does a woman who grew up in rural Indiana as a fundamentalist Christian end up a practicing Jew in New York? 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: A Memoir is a fascinating story of struggle, doubt, and finally, personal fulfillment.
