An Evening with Jonathan Safran Foer

Oshman Family JCC

Join us for an evening with Jonathan Safran Foer, author of the novels "Everything Is Illuminated" and "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and the nonfiction book "Eating Animals." His work has received numerous awards and been translated into thirty-eight languages. Jonathan will be discussing his new book, "Here I Am", an instant New York Times bestseller. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., "Here I Am" is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bear. One of the year's most anticipated novels, "Here I Am" is bestselling Safran Foer's most searching, hard-hitting and grandly entertaining novel yet. Paperback copies of "Here I Am" will be available for $17 at the event. Ticket/book bundles are available in advance. Part of the Jewish Luminaries Series Schultz Cultural Arts Hall | $22 Ticket and book $15 General Public (ticket only) | $12 Members and J-Pass holders (ticket only) For more information, visit
