Share What Makes a Short Story Jewish? A Fiction Reading by David Ebenbach

Event Details

In this session, author David Ebenbach will give a reading of short fiction from his forthcoming collection, Into the Wilderness. Ebenbach will then discuss the story to re-open an ongoing conversation about what makes a short story (or a poem, or a novel, or a play) Jewish. Does the work have to deal with certain themes or explicitly Jewish content? Is it a matter of labeling? If the author is Jewish, does that make the work automatically Jewish? Above all, how much does this question of Jewishness actually matter?

A light lunch will be served.

This event is co-sponsored with the Department of English.
