Event description

Description

Join Stephen Wise Free Synagogue's Israel Committee and Chofshi B'Manhattan for a discussion with award-winning Israeli novelist Ayelet Gundar-Goshen on her second novel and New York Times Editor's Choice, Waking Lions, which NPR's Maureen Corrigan called "a psychological suspense tale mashed with a social novel about the refugee crisis."

Gundar-Goshen has written a number of screenplays, and has produced short films which were screened at film festivals in Israel and abroad. She has also written and co-written a number of TV series, and Waking Lions is being adapted for a TV series in the United States.

Gundar-Goshen has been awarded 2nd prize at the IEMed European Short Story Competition (Barcelona, 2010), the Gottlieb Screenplay Prize (2010), the Berlin Today Award for the screenplay of the short film Batman at the Checkpoint (Berlin, 2012), the Sapir Prize for Debut Fiction (2012) and the ADEI-WIZO Prize (Italy, 2016) for One Night, Markovitch. For her second novel, Waking Lions, she received the Jewish Quarterly Wingate Prize (UK, 2017) and the French WIZO Prize (2017). Waking Lions is included in New York Times' 100 Notable Books of 2017.

This event is made possible by a grant from the Schwartz Israel Fund.
