Gefen, Iddo, “Jerusalem Beach” on zoom
Thursday, Apr 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$10
On Zoom only!!!!
For fans of Etgar Keret, a debut collection that fuses the humor of everyday life in Israel with technology’s challenges and the latest discoveries about the human brain.
At once compassionate, philosophical, and humorous, Jerusalem Beach is a foray into the human condition in all its contradictions. Through a series of snapshots of contemporary life in Israel, Gefen reveals a world that’s a step from the familiar.
A man’s grandfather joins an army platoon of geriatrics looking for a purpose in old age. A scheming tech start-up exposes the dire consequences of ambition in trying to share human memories. An elderly couple searches for a beach that doesn’t exist. And, a boy mourns his brother’s death in an attempt to catch time like flies in his fist.
