"Lilith: She-Devil in the Garden of Eden”

Whether you know her as a she-devil or as Adam’s first wife in the Garden of Eden, Lilith is undoubtedly a badass. This mythical figure has repeatedly appeared in literature from Northern Europe, Arabia, and even the Americas, sparking debates about theology and gender whenever her name is mentioned. This week, in a lecture at Changing Hands Tempe, 6428 South McClintock Drive, Dr. Sharonah Frederick, the assistant director of the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, will explore Lilith’s controversial history. Frederick’s lecture “Lilith: She-Devil in the Garden of Eden” will begin at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21. For more information, call 480-730-0205 or visit
