Evelyn Rubinstein Jewish Community Center
Support local. The Evelyn Rubinstein Jewish Community Center is proud to present Houston’s own writer and food advocate, Bettina Elias Siegel on September 3 at 7:30 p.m. in part of its virtual series, Authors in Conversation @ Home. The conversation will be led by Zibby Owens, the host of the award-winning podcast Moms Don’t Have Time to Read.
Bettina’s nationally recognized book, Kid Food, explores one of the biggest challenges of modern parenting – trying to raise healthy eaters in a society intent on pushing children in the opposite direction. From food issues in our society, to picky eaters, to the unfortunate overlaps between junk food and school lunches, Kid Food offers a deeper understanding of the pervasiveness of processed food and all the factors in play for parents concerned about their children’s diets.
Named “NYC’s Most Powerful Book-fluencer,” by Vulture, Zibby has recommended books in the Washington Post, Good Morning Americaand Real Simple. She has also contributed to Parents, Marie Claire, Redbook, the New York Times online, and many other publications.
As COVID-19 continues, it is more important than ever for parents of children of all ages to sustain and create new routines and healthy eating habits.
This event is in partnership with Congregation Emanu El and the JCCs of Boulder, Dallas, Miami, Nashville, Scottsdale, Seattle, Staten Island and Tampa.

A Woman of the World (September 25 to October 11, 2020)
Mabel Loomis Todd was labeled a “woman of the world” for her free-wheeling and passionate embrace of life. An accomplished journalist and naturalist, she also held close confidence with one of America’s most famed and reclusive poets, Emily Dickinson and in fact, was the first editor of Dickinson’s poems. But Loomis’ story is largely lost to history in favor of a more marketable version of the Dickinson legacy. Rebecca Gilman brings to light Loomis’ lost story in a riveting look at a mysterious – perhaps even dangerous – woman. Scandalous revelations or reckless gossip – you get to decide for yourself in this one-woman tour-de-force staring the incomparable Sally Edmundson.
