Event Description
The Jewish Studies Center at Baruch College presents "The Real and The Imagined: Talk and Reading with Etgar Keret" Featured Speaker Etgar Keret Hailed as the voice of young Israel and one of its most radical and extraordinary writers, Etgar Keret is internationally acclaimed for his short stories. Born in Tel Aviv in 1967 to an extremely diverse family, his brother heads an Israeli group that lobbies for the legalization of marijuana, and his sister is an orthodox Jew and the mother of ten children. Keret regards his family as a microcosm of Israel. His books are bestsellers in Israel and have been published in twenty-two languages. Books include Bus Driver Who Wanted to Be God (2004, St. Martin’s Press); The Nimrod Flip-Out (2006, Farrar, Straus & Giroux); Missing Kissinger (2007, Chatto & Windus); and Gaza Blues (2004). His most recent book, Suddenly a Knock on the Door (2010), became an instant #1 bestseller in Israel and has just come out in the United States. Keret has received the Book Publishers Association`s Platinum Prize several times, the Chevalier medallion of France’s Order of Arts and Letters, and has been awarded the Prime Minister`s Prize, and the Ministry of Culture`s Cinema Prize. More than forty short movies have been based on his stories, one of which won the American MTV Prize (1998). Free admission.
