Featuring David Grossman and Nadine Gordimer. David Grossman is a novelist, journalist, and children's book writer whose work examines the human soul, love, and the Holocaust, as well as the tragedies and opportunities of contemporary Israeli-Palestinian relations. In 1988, Grossman received the Har Zion Prize in recognition of his efforts to enhance peace and understanding between Arabs and Jews. Last year, he joined A.B. Yehoshua and Amos Oz in a plea to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to reach a cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hezbollah forces in Lebanon. A few days later, Grossman's son Uri was killed when his tank was hit by a Hezbollah missile. After the lecture, David Grossman will be joined on stage by Nobel Prize-winning author Nadine Gordimer for a discussion about his life and work.
