Jewish Fiction Written in 16 Languages: Stories as Reflections of Jewish Life
Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)
What is Jewish fiction? And what is it not? How does Jewish fiction reflect the lived experiences of Jews from various times and places?
Join us for a special online talk with Dr. Nora Gold, the founder and Editor-in-Chief the online literary journal Jewish Fiction .net! Tuesday, July 13, 8 pm Israel time, 6 pm London time, 1 pm EST
In this online talk, Dr. Nora Gold will briefly discuss 16 of the stories in Jewish Fiction .net (one from each of the above languages, including English), and will relate these to some of the central themes in Jewish fiction. Dr. Gold will also discuss the relationship between fiction and “real” life and how Jewish fiction reflects the actual experiences of Jews throughout history.
Jewish Fiction .net is the only English-language journal, either print or online, that is devoted exclusively to Jewish fiction.
