Book Title: The Cosmopolitans
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Limited seating, reservations required Dessert reception
As a child, Nadia Kalman emigrated with her family from the former Soviet Union to Stamford, Connecticut. Her debut novel, The Cosmopolitans, is a warm comic novel about the Molochniks, a family of Russian-Jewish immigrants living in suburban Connecticut. The family experiences weddings, floods, clashing cultures, and a past that emerges in strange ways at the most inconvenient times.
Kalman has been a middle-school teacher and assistant principal and today she works as a writer in New York City schools. Nadia was the 2011 Aami Rohr Prize Finalist.
"Kalman's writing is crisp, her design elegant, and the book is astoundingly funny, too. I feel lucky that I got to read this terrific novel. You'll feel lucky, too." Victor LaValle
