Writing Jewish: A Discussion with Nicole Krauss and Joshua Cohen

WRITING JEWISH: A DISCUSSION

Part of JTS’s Opening Season

Monday, April 25, 2022, 7:00 p.m. ET
Online and In Person at JTS

Jews have always been writers of books—from books for Jews with self-consciously Jewish content to books with no obvious Jewish consciousness directed toward the general reading public. But there are also authors who create worlds filled with Jews (and others) who embody human experiences with a Jewish twist for readers of all kinds. Two of the most outstanding such contemporary writers are Joshua Cohen and Nicole Krauss, who will join JTS Professor and Librarian David Kraemer to discuss what it means to “write Jewish” in today’s world. Join us for what promises to be an unforgettable exchange.

His books include the novels The NetanyahusMoving KingsBook of NumbersWitzA Heaven of Others, and Cadenza for the Schneidermann Violin Concerto; the short fiction collection Four New Messages, and the nonfiction collection Attention: Dispatches from a Land of Distraction. Called “a major American writer” by the New York Times and “an extraordinary prose stylist, surely one of the most prodigious at work in American fiction today” by the New Yorker, Cohen was awarded Israel’s 2013 Matanel Prize for Jewish Writers, and in 2017 was named one of Granta’s Best Young American Novelists. In 2022, he received the National Jewish Book Award for Fiction for The Netanyahus.
