Israel: A Tale of Love and Darkness?
The Jewish return to political power is a modern miracle. But with great power comes great responsibility. Has Israel lived up to its promise? And what comes next for the Jewish state, as it navigates a deeply unstable region and a new American president? Join Daniel Gordis and Nir Baram, two celebrated authors writing from Israel, for a provocative conversation. Copies of Gordis’s new history of Israel will be distributed at the event as a part of The Israel Bookshelf. Copies of Baram’s title will be available for sale, a month before the official publication date.
Nir Baram was born into a political family in Jerusalem in 1976. His grandfather and father were both Israeli Labor Party ministers. He has worked as a journalist and editor, and began publishing fiction 22 years old. Between 1998 and 2006 Nir published three novels in Hebrew; his November 2016 novel Good People was the first to be released in English, and his forthcoming memoir A Land Without Borders: My Journey Around East Jerusalem and the West Bank publishes internationally April 2017.

He writes regular columns for The Jerusalem Post and Bloomberg View. Israel: A Concise History of a Nation Reborn is his eleventh book to publish in English.
