Molly Antopol’s debut book, her short story collection The UnAmericans, has been called “Fresh and offbeat… memorable and promising” by the New York Times and “unflinchingly honest” by The Nation. A California native, and current professor at Stanford University, The UnAmericans was nominated for the National Book Award, the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Award for Debut Fiction, and the National Jewish Book Award.
Jewish Lit Live hosts rising and renowned Jewish American writers to speak with the GW and literary community. Guest speakers have included emerging leaders, National Humanities Award Recipients, international bestsellers, and UN-Award Winning Writers, e.g. Michael Chabon, E.L. Doctorow, Nicole Krauss, & Erica Jong.
Jewish Literature Live is made possible by the generous support of David Bruce Smith, BA ’79, a former member of GW’s Board of Trustees and an alumnus of the English Department.
