|Novelist Nadia Kalman reads Thursday at 7 p.m.|
Nadia Kalman, an immigrant from the former Soviet Union, currently works with Teachers & Writers Collaborative in New York City.
Her first novel, The Cosmopolitans, won the Emerging Writer Award from Moment magazine and was a finalist for the Rohr Prize in Jewish Literature. Kalman also received a 2012 Literature Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.
The Cosmopolitans tells the story of a Russian family living in the suburbs of America. Kalman's witty prose and vivid character descriptions keep the novel fresh and interesting with each short segment.
Kalman's reading is on Thursday, Feb. 9 in Marvin Center 308 at 7pm. Jewish Literature Live is made possible by David Bruce Smith and all of the events are free and open to the public.
