Ratner will be reading from his novel The Jump Artist. The book is based on the true story of Philippe Halsman, a Jewish man accused of killing his own father in what became known as “The Austrian Dreyfus Affair.” Halsman rose above the tragedy, transforming himself from a victim of history into the world-famous photographer who defined American post-war optimism. Ratner brings him vividly to life in The Jump Artist, a novel praised by Harper’s, GQ and BookList. Aviya Kushner will be reading selections from her writing. Kushner is a faculty member in Columbia College’s creative writing department. Her work has appeared in Zoetrope: All-Story, the Harvard Review, Prairie Schooner, Passages North, The Saint Ann’s Review, and Salamander. She covers books and authors for The Jerusalem Post, and she is a contributing editor at A Public Space. Her forthcoming book, And There Was Evening, And There Was Morning, is about the experience of reading the Bible in English after a lifetime of reading it in Hebrew. FREE (aarti)
