“Jewish Literature Live” Authors Announced for 2012

Spring 2012 will mark the fourth iteration of Jewish Literature Live, the unique course in which students read the works by writers who then visit their classroom for an intimate discussion. As before, each author visiting campus will give a free public reading. 

This year, the inimitable Prof. Faye Moskowitz has assembled a line-up of writers that includes the author a 1965 bestseller (Bel Kaufman’s Up the Down Staircase) as well as younger writers of a 2010 novel about Russian-Jewish immigrants in Connecticut (Nadia Kalman’s funny The Cosmopolitans).  

Mark your calendars now for these public readings, and check in to our department calendar for updates about the times and locations of talks. One again, Jewish Literature Live at GW is generously supported by English department alumnus David Bruce Smith.
