The George Washington University Department of English and Jewish Lit Live (JLL) proudly present a reading by Annabelle Gurwitch on Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 7:00PM in The GW Marvin Center Amphitheater.
Annabelle Gurwitch is an American comedienne, actress, and writer. She will be reading from her new book, I See You Made and Effort: Compliments, Indignities, and Survival Stories from the Edge of 50. Gurwitch is “one of the first trio of Women selected as nominees, along with Roz Chast, for The Thurber Prize for Humor,” and our first author for 2015’s Jewish Literature Live.
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.
We hope that your organization, departments, and related listservs may be able to help us in advertising our events for this semester, and that members of your community may join us in recognizing these prominent literary figures.
~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.
This event is FREE and OPEN to the public. First come- first serve seating.
