Professor of Jewish Studies at Stanford University Steven J. Zipperstein, author of "Pogrom: Kishinev and the Tilt of History" (Liveright/WW Norton, 2018), has just started writing a biographical study of Philip Roth. Roth is one of the world's most highly regarded and awarded American writers of his generation, if not one of the most controversial America novelists. The biographical study is based on extensive archival research, interviews with close friends and others, as well as conversations with Roth himself over the course of several years.
Join us for a fascinating evening as Steven Zipperstein and professor of Jewish Studies at Hunter College Leah Garrett discuss the life of Philip Roth and Zipperstein’s journey on beginning a biography.
This event will be held online via Zoom.
