Sunday Jewish Book Group: The Hare with Amber Eyes

Join us on September 8, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. for a discussion of the book The Hare with Amber Eyes: A Hidden Inheritance, by Edmund de Waal. Our discussion will be facilitated by Melody Rod-ari, Assistant Professor of Art & Art History in LMU’s College of Communication and Fine Arts.

The Hare with Amber Eyes is a family memoir by British ceramicist Edmund de Waal. De Waal tells the story of his family, the Ephrussi, once a very wealthy European Jewish banking dynasty, centered in Odessa, Vienna and Paris, and peers of the Rothschild family.

The Sunday Jewish Book and Discussion Group is free and open to the public. Light refreshments and riveting conversation will be served. Please RSVP by contacting Rhonda Rosen at or 310-338-4584. This event will take place in the library’s Von der Ahe Family Suite (level 3).
