Event Details

Join New York Review Books for an evening with Sasha Abramsky as he reads from ‘The House of Twenty Thousand Books.’

‘The House of Twenty Thousand Books’ is journalist Sasha Abramsky’s elegy not only to his grandparents, Chimen and Miriam Abramsky, but to the vanished intellectual world of their North London home, where they cultivated a vast library of socialist literature and Jewish history while drawing the greatest thinkers of the era—including Isaiah Berlin and Eric Hobsbawm—to their salon. ‘The House of Twenty Thousand Books’ is at once the story of a fascinating family and a chronicle of the embattled twentieth century.
