Dr. Aryeh Lev Stollman, who kicks off this year’s Jewish Literature Live readings, is one of those remarkable polymaths: an award-winning fiction writer whose “day job” is as a neuroradiologist at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.
His first novel, From the Far Euphrates, was an LA Times Book Review Recommended Book of the Year, winner of a Wilbur Award, a Lambda Award, and other recognitions. It has been translated into German, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, and Hebrew. He is also author of the award-winning novel The Illuminated Soul and the short-story collection The Dialogues of Time and Entropy. Stollman’s story “Love Returns!” (listen to it here) was commissioned by NPR and broadcast in 2008.
The Jewish Literature Live readings series is supported by a generous gift by GW alumnus and trustee David Bruce Smith and curated by Prof. Faye Moskowitz, who teaches the course Jewish Literature Live, a unique GW offering in which students meet in an intimate seminar setting with notable Jewish authors of the day.
Aryeh Lev Stollman’s reading is Thursday, January 26 in Marvin Center 310 at 7 pm. The event is free and open to everyone.
