Nathan Englander reads and discusses his new novel,
Dinner At the Center of the Earth
Tuesday, September 26th 7:00 PM
The current Distinguished Writer-in-Residence at New York University and winner of the Frank O'Conner International Short Story Award, Nathan Englander, comes to Chevalier's and reads from the soon-to-be released (September 5th) Dinner at the Center of the Earth. If you already have plans for the 26th, cancel them, and if you didn't have plans yet, you do now - attendance is required. Dinner at the Center of the Earth is Mr. Englander's twist on a political thriller and unfolds in the highly charged territory of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, then pivots into the complex relationship between a secret prisoner and his guard.
Nathan's previous works, The Ministry of Special Cases, For the Relief of Unbearable Urges, and What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank have all been critically acclaimed, along with his recent translation of the Haggadah (done with Jonathan Safran-Foer). He's consistently proving to be an important, potent voice in literature, such as his recent editorial in The New Yorker concerning the rallies in Charlottesville.
