Selichot: An Evening with Ayelet Gundar-Goshen

Ayelet Gundar-Goshen’s discussion will focus on her critically acclaimed third novel, The Liar, which is a satirical exploration of the ways that society fuels gossip and the nature of lies and truth telling in the #MeToo era.

Please join us after the talk for Selichot Service at 8:00 pm in the Waller Chapel. Selichot (translated as forgiveness) is a service that helps us prepare our hearts and our souls for the Days of Awe.

Ayelet Gundar-Goshen’s first novel, One Night, Markovitch, won the Sapir Prize in 2012 for debut novels, the Italian Adei-Wizo Prize, and the French Adei-Wizo Prize. It has been translated to 14 languages.
Her second novel, Waking Lions, a thriller with emotional depth addressing the plight of refugees in Israel, won the 2017 Jewish Quarterly-Wingate Prize and The New York Times Book Review picked Waking Lions as “Editors’ Choice” and is being adapted as a television series in the U.S.

Co-sponsored by the University of Louisville’s Jewish Studies Program
