Israeli Lit Book Club

Hosted By: Romemu

In this upcoming book group, we will engage with Israeli literature in English translation. Together, we will explore themes of identity, spirituality, and community in Hebrew novels, memoirs, and short stories by both contemporary Jewish-Israeli and Arab-Israeli authors. We will also showcase several Israeli writers who are not yet well known in the United States.

This class will meet on six Thursdays throughout the first half of 2021.
