Jefferson-Madison Regional Library’s inaugural Same Page community-wide reading series invites residents to discuss themes of neighborliness, trust, and Jewish identities through the lens of Nathan Englander’s short story collection, What We Talk About When We Talk about Anne Frank. Englander will read from his work and take community questions before signing books, which will be available for purchase onsite.

Why should you attend?

What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank is Nathan Englander’s wisest, funniest, bravest, and most beautiful book. It overflows with revelations and gems.” —Jonathan Safran Foer

“Nathan Englander writes the stories I am always hoping for, searching for. These are stories that transport you into other lives, other dreams. This is deft, engrossing, deeply satisfying work. Englander is, to me, the modern master of the form. And this collection is the very best.” —Geraldine Brooks

“Showcases Mr. Englander’s extraordinary gifts as a writer.” —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
