Who is ready to jizz their jewy pants?
No they aren’t “hooking up” BUT Jonathan Safran Foer and Natalie Portman will be hanging out together with you in Brooklyn on September 6th to discuss Foer’s newest Novel “Here I am” YES! HASHEM YES!
Here I Am is the monumental new novel from Jonathan Safran Foer. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks, in present-day Washington, D.C.,Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers and critics loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer’s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. Jonathan will be joined in conversation by Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman.
Brooklyn By the Book is a collaboration between Brooklyn Public Library, Community Bookstore, and Congregation Beth Elohim.
