Etgar Keret at Blue Met 2013

We're getting closer! Our first 2013 Festival events start on Sunday, April 21 (when I see that this is three days, my heart starts racing: so much to do still!) with two events for Israeli writer, Etgar Keret.

Mr. Keret is one of the most widely praised short story writers working today and one of the most unique facets of his work is his tone and sense of humour. It's almost impossible to explain here but his stories are uniquely funny and very entertaining.

He will be here on Sunday at 3pm at Chapters/Indigo (the one on the corner of McGill College and Ste-Catherine): an interview, reading and book signing. Come on down, it's free!

Then later that evening, he will appear at the Jewish Public Library (5151 Chemin Cote-Ste-Catherine) in an author talk: a lecture, a longer reading followed by a book signing. This event is selling really well so I would highly suggest getting your tickets asap and/or arriving very early to get tickets at the door. Books will be available on site as well. TIckets are $15 and available here.

His events are sure to be a great kick-off to our 2013 Festival and are in partnership with the Israeli Consulate of Montreal, the Jewish Public Library and Chapters/Indigo downtown.

Incidentally, check out Ernest Hoffman's really fascinating piece about Etgar Keret in this month's Almemar.
