Narrative Grace -- Nicole Krauss with Elizabeth Rosner

7:30 p.m.

Kepler's Books

Menlo Park, CA 94025

Goodbye, Portnoy.

Nicole Krauss has been called many things over her career. A "New Yiddishist," dubbed by Vanity Fair in 2009, might be the most peculiar. Known for her unmistakable voice, her narrative grace and a profound ability to capture the human experience, it's understandable that so many critics are hungry to identify her place in the canon.

What can is undeniable, however, is that she will not be mistaken for the Roths and Malamuds of your father's bookcase.

In her most recent work, Forest Dark, Krauss takes readers from the cozy streets of Brooklyn and the Upper East Side to the bustling sidewalks of Tel Aviv, all in an effort to stare down the question of what it truly means to be Jewish-American. The startling result of her journey back to the homeland, which never quite feels like home, turns the traditional novel inside out and stands alone as one of Krauss's best novels yet.

Join her live on-stage at Kepler's as she sits down with one of the Bay Area's brightest Jewish-American voices, Elizabeth Rosner, for a conversation on the contemporary Jewish novel, the importance of literature, and how the past informs the present.

Rosner's first work of nonfiction, Survivor Cafe: the Legacy of Trauma and the Labyrinth of Memory, also forthcoming this September, will be available for purchase the night of the event. Describing the traumas of war and dislocation, Rosner, who is the acclaimed author of three previous novels, speaks to the immense weight of history that Forest Dark and Krauss herself write toward.

Be a part of the conversation!
