A Discussion with Author Nicole Krauss

Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 7:30 p.m.

This fourth novel from National Book Award finalist and New York Times best-selling author Nicole Krauss entwines disparate narratives chronicling two characters who find themselves at a crossroads in life. Retired New York attorney Jules and blocked Brooklyn writer Nicole each take an unexpected journey, seeking answers in the Israeli desert and coming to terms with the legacy of the ancient land and the modern nation forged from it.
