The Art of Leaving: Language, Longing, and Belonging

Ayelet Tsabari, Author
Monday, October 28, 2019
7:00-8:30 PM
Off Campus Location
Author of the award-winning The Best Place on Earth and The Art of Leaving, Ayelet Tsabari will speak of growing up Mizrahi in Israel, about re-finding and reclaiming that identity through writing and through extensive research into Yemeni culture and traditions. Tsabari will share some of the unique challenges she has faced as an immigrant author writing about Israel in English, her second language. This lecture will explore the many ways in which a writer's cultural background, mother tongue, and origins influence and inform her writing, in terms of both content and style.
