Jonathan Safran Foer - Here I Am

Upcoming Event
Friday, June 16, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Now available in paperback, Foer’s expansive third novel unfolds over just six weeks in contemporary Washington. But as his title suggests, with its echoes of Abraham and the Old Testament prophets, Foer is exploring timeless and universal questions of faith, sacrifice, and intimate human relationships. Centered on the Bloch family, the narrative traces the rising tension between Jacob and Julia, and charts the effects of the parents’ unhappiness on their children. Meanwhile, in the Middle East, an earthquake is wreaking havoc in the already troubled Holy Land. Deftly interweaving the Blochs’ personal turmoil with the larger political events, Foer explores what it means to be religious in the modern world and what responsibilities American Jews have toward Israel.
