Rabbi Andrea Myers

Everything works out as it should.

Turns out, Andrea Myers will be in Toronto for one day only, and wants to spend part of it at the Toronto Women’s Bookstore! The date? September 15th. Go figure.

She will spend from 7-8:30 pm chatting with me about (and reading from) her new book The Choosing. It’s a compilation of stories from her life, and so far it’s a great read.

Andrea Myers was born in New York to a Sicilian Catholic mother and a German Lutheran father – then she left home for college, converted to Judaism, and eventually became a Rabbi. Oh, and she’s a lesbian.

That’s it in a nutshell. LOL. Intrigued?

I have laughed often in the 4 chapters I have read so far. Andrea’s writing is engaging and rich. And I had cause to make a few notes as well – inspired by her stories and their lessons.

Tune back in, I’ll be back with a couple more posts as I make my way through the book before she arrives on September 15th.

I hope you can join us at the TWB from 7-8:30pm EST. If not, we’ll be livestreaming starting at 7:30pm EST at www.facingout.ca/live-stream.html.
