Nicole Krauss: A Literary Conversation

Please join us for an evening with author Nicole Krauss, one of the most important Jewish American novelists writing today. Her 2005 book, History of Love, is an enthralling tale of loneliness and the power of literature to create bonds across time and space. Her 2011 book, Great House, which won a National Book Award (among other prizes), explores memory, loss and storytelling. Her most recent novel, Forest Dark (2017), takes place in Tel Aviv, with two protagonists on spiritual quests to free themselves from their respective obsessions. Krauss’ work resonates widely with a universal audience, and has been translated into more than 30 languages.
