Spring 2021 Schedule / Literature / ISRAELI LITERATURE

Coordinators: Martha Drezin, Mary Ann Donnelly, Art Spar

We are excited to continue our discussion of Israeli literature. We will read short stories, poems, plays and essays by writers that represent different aspects of Israeli life during different eras.  Presentations may include readings, dramatizations and other modalities designed to inspire class participation.  Our goal is both an immersion in fine literature and a deeper understanding of the complexity of this vibrant country.
