Sperber Short Story Discussion: Eshkol Nevo, Series

2:00pm-3:00pm PDT

Join us with Jim Van Buskirk, writer and book club facilitator, in a 3-session class focusing on the three connected stories from the book, "Three Floors Up" by popular Israeli author Eshkol Nevo. This novel examines a society in crisis through the lens of one Tel Aviv apartment building's residents, with their secret turmoils, unreliable confessions, and problematic choices. Each fascinating story stands on its own and will be discussed separately. (Participants must purchase or check out the book independently).
