Continuing our partnership with The Center for Fiction, Jewish Book Council is thrilled to welcome Dayton Literary Peace Prize and National Jewish Book Award finalist Moriel Rothman-Zecher to the stage for a conversation on his mesmerizing, inventive new novel, Before All the World. In 1930s Philadelphia, three souls seize new life while haunted by the old. Nestled in this wild dream of a narrative are several love stories: two men of different countries and races who find comfort in each other; a man and a woman who spark each other’s lust through intellectual play; a woman and a boy who are the only survivors of their history; a man and the daughter he will never know. Rothman-Zecher explores the impossibility of escaping trauma, the necessity of believing in a better way ahead, and the power that comes from our responsibility to the future.
