This event has been postponed due to COVID-19. New date TBD.

Internationally acclaimed Israeli writer and filmmaker Etgar Keret discusses Fly Already, his Sapir Prize-winning collection of quirky short stories.

Admission $20.

Keret is known for his absurd, sad, funny, very short stories, as well as graphic novels and screenwriting. His previous books include Suddenly, a Knock at the Door; The Bus Driver Who Wanted to Be God; The Nimrod Flipout; and many more. You can find links to some of his stories at www.etgarkeret.com/stories.html and if you’re looking specifically for the talking goldfish story it’s here.

“There’s only one thing Keret is incapable of doing with a story: writing one that’s boring”.
– Guardian
