An Evening with Etgar Keret
An evening with Etgar Keret
Presented in association with Miami Book Fair
Internationally-acclaimed writer Etgar Keret wrote stories in an attempt to capture his late mother. The stories portray both day-to-day family life in Israel, and traumatic wartime experiences inspired by the life of his mother Orna, who was born in Poland in 1934. “For my mom,” says Keret, “the idea of telling us stories from children’s books was like ordering a pizza instead of making us dinner. It would mean that she doesn’t love us enough.” His mother made it to Israel after World War II when she was 14. The stories were written for an exhibition called “Inside Out” at the Jewish Museum in Berlin.
