What is the Jewish literary tradition in the U.S., and which authors created it? How did later authors, from Philip Roth to Nicole Krauss, riff off or break from it? What makes an author a Jewish author or a book a Jewish book, anyway? Join Amy Weiss as she tackles these and other questions in a course equal parts history and book club discussions. Amy will explore how the American Jewish literary tradition has evolved.
