Book Release: Nicole Krauss Presents To Be a Man

12pm PST

Nicole Krauss is one of the most influential literary voices today. Her new release, To Be a Man, is a collection of short fiction and very likely her strongest work yet.

American Jewish University is please to invite you to the book launch for To Be a Man, where Nicole Krauss, a National Book Award finalist and New York Times best-selling author, will be in conversation with Rabbi Sherre Hirsch. Together, they will explore lessons learned, and discuss the struggle to understand what it means to be a man, what it means to be a woman, and how those struggles have connected the author to her own experiences in the world.

Note: The cost of attendance is the purchase of the author's latest release through an independent book seller - Book Pal.  Follow the link for easy to follow directions.  Upon purchase confirmation you will be enrolled in the Zoom webinar and receive your unique join link.
