Internationally bestselling Jewish novelist Nicole Krauss will deliver this year’s Hillel Rogoff memorial lecture on February 6 at 7 p.m. for Yeshiva University. She’ll be at YU’s Israel Henry Beren Campus, in the Koch auditorium at 245 Lexington Avenue.
Ms. Krauss’ talk, “Forest Dark: The Path to Writing,” will focus on her most recent work, “Forest Dark,” a novel set in New York and Israel. The main characters, an aging lawyer and a young novelist, each searching for truth, find themselves in the Israeli desert. Ms. Krauss’ earlier novels all have been bestsellers and award winners. “Man Walks into a Room” was a Los Angeles Times Book of the Year finalist and “The History of Love” was a New York Times bestseller and winner of the Saroyan Prize for International Literature. Her books have been translated into more than 35 languages.
Hillel (Harry) Rogoff was an early alumnus of Yeshiva University and a longtime editor of the Jewish Daily Forward. The lecture was established in 1971 through the efforts of late YU English professor and administrator Dr. David Mirsky and members of the Rogoff family.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
