Elie Wiesel: An Extraordinary Life and Legacy

Join Moment Magazine Editor-in-Chief Nadine Epstein for an inspirational discussion about her new book about Elie Wiesel and a multimedia presentation about his life and legacy. She’ll share wonderful stories about him from some of his closest friends and colleagues plus his son Elisha. You’ll come away with a deeper understanding of the multi-faceted legacy of this great humanitarian.

In her new book on Wiesel, Epstein brings together reflections from friends, colleagues, and others who knew him—including Elisha, Michael Berenbaum, Wolf Blitzer, Father Patrick Desbois, Ben Kingsley, Ronald S. Lauder, Bernard-Henri Lévy, Kati Marton, Itzhak Perlman, Natan Sharansky, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Oprah Winfrey, and Ruth Wisse. With the foreword by British Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks and the afterword by Ted Koppel, the book includes a visual history of his life, and some of his speeches, lively conversations with teenagers about Night, and discussion questions.

“It is critical to keep Elie’s memory alive at a time when anti-Semitism and prejudice are again on the rise, and the lessons he taught have been called into question.”
