NYPL: Israeli Author/Musician Etgar Keret: The Rock & the Hard Place
March 6, 2017 @ 7:00 PM
Etgar Keret with Paul Holdengraber: The Rock and the Hard Place
Join NYPL for a rare opportunity to hear legendary Israeli writer Etgar Keret as he reads some of his best work. Keret will share stories about his creative process.
Whether evoking the tragicomic and surreal for which his short stories first gained acclaim, or awakening the keen love of family in 2015’s The Seven Good Years, Etgar Keret mines the human experience for all of its farce and dignity. LIVE welcomes the Israeli author to discuss his work and influences and what 2017 may hold for our two countries.
