Literature Evenings: “Small Bibles for Bad Times”

March 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
Visionary French poet/playwright/novelist Liliane Atlan, recipient of the Shoah Prize and a career achievement award from the Festival d’Avignon, was a genre-defying, feminist and political writer, active in France and in Israel, where she made work with Palestinian theatre artists.

From murderous history, Atlan created a darkly radiant body of work.  She was driven to “find language to say the unsayable . . . to [find a way] to integrate within our conscience, without dying in the attempt, the shattering experience of Auschwitz.”

This event will begin with a staged reading from “Mister Fugue,” Atlan’s best-known play, performed by Drama faculty Kirk Jackson, with students Joshua Goldberg, David Guzman, and Ruby Loewenstein.
