A River Could Be a Tree: A Memoir
The seventh of 11 children, Angela grew up in southern Indiana in an apocalyptic, doomsday Christian faith. Attempting to understand the church’s strict tenets, she went to Israel in college. Instead of strengthening her Christian faith, her time in Israel made her question Christianity itself. She ultimately converted to Judaism and now lives in New York City with her family.
Angela Himsel’s writing has appeared in The New York Times, the Jewish Week, the Forwardand elsewhere. Her memoir is listed in the 23 Best New Memoirs at bookauthority.org. She is passionate about her children, Israel, the Canaanites and chocolate.
