New Works Wednesdays with Edith Scott Saavedra

January 13 , 12:00 pm


American Sephardi Federation presents historical fiction author Edith Scott Saavedra, exploring her journey to bring alive the culture and history of Sephardic Aragon and true stories of resistance to the Spanish Inquisition by giving voice to women and girls. “The Lamps of Albarracín” is a fictional first-person narrative by a Sephardic girl that recounts the arrival of the Spanish Inquisition into the Kingdom of Aragon in the 1480s. It is based on extensive review of Spanish Inquisition testimony and historical research. Register here.
