Join Israeli Novelist Shani Boianjiu for Today’s Twitter Book Club

Join us and the Jewish Book Council at 1:30 p.m. EST today for what should be a fascinating Twitter Book Club with Shani Boianjiu, the author of The People of Forever Are Not Afraid. In the novel, the 25-year-old Israeli writer weaves together the compelling tale of Lea, Avishag, and Yael, three friends from a small village near the Lebanese border as they begin their service in the Israel Defense Forces.

Use the hashtag #JLit to follow along with the discussion, and don’t hesitate to jump in with questions of your own—just make sure you include Boianjiu’s Twitter handle (@ShaniBoianjiu) and #JLit.

Before our chat, don’t miss:

• Jacob Silverman’s Culture Kvetch column about Boianjiu’s novel and the unique challenges of being a successful young writer.

• The Jewish Book Council’s review of The People of Forever Are Not Afraid.

• Boianjiu’s three blog posts for the Jewish Book Council’s Visiting Scribe series.

• Boianjiu’s New Yorker fiction, published this summer.

• The Jewish Book Council’s contemporary Israeli literature book list.
