Yet More Fun With Jewish Authors

Can’t make it to the Jewish Literary Festival? Well, there are two more opportunities to engage with Jewish authors next week.

Renowned Israeli author, Amos Oz, will be autographing copies of his latest novel, Scenes from Village Life, which will be sold at the event.  The book, comprised of different stories from a young Israeli village, has been called “a brilliant, unsettling glimpse of what goes on beneath the surface of everyday life.” This event is open to the public and free of charge.

WHEN: Sunday, October 30, 5:00 p.m.

WHERE: Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW

Looking for something a bit lighter? Meir Shalev will speak about his book, My Russian Grandmother and Her American Vacuum Cleaner: A Family Memoir. This lighthearted tale of family ties and over-the-top housekeeping recounts the author’s grandmother’s experiences in a the emerging state of Israel as she wrestles with the family’s biggest enemy in their adoptive land: dirt..  The talk will be followed by a book signing.

WHEN: Wednesday, November 2, 7:00 p.m.

WHERE: Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, 600 I St. NW
