With Peter Orner

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon, whose bestselling novels include Wonder Boys, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, and Telegraph Avenue, has a remarkable ability to transport his readers. His latest is Moonglow, an autobiography wrapped in a novel disguised as a memoir, that unfolds as the deathbed confession of a grandfather to his grandson. He appears in conversation with Peter Orner, author of Esther Stories, Love and Shame and Love and the forthcoming Am I Alone Here?

“[Chabon’s] people become so real to us, their problems so palpably netted in the author’s buoyant, expressionistic prose, that the novel gradually becomes a genuinely immersive experience—something increasingly rare in our ADD age.”
– New York Times

Moonglow is Jewish LearningWorks' One Bay One Book selection for 2016 - 2017. For more information about One Bay One Book events, resources, and getting involved, visit One Bay One Book.
