Bay Area Book Festival: Journeys Through Generations

The Bay Area Book Festival is partnering with the Goethe-Institut San Francisco to celebrate and showcase German literature at this year’s festival as part of the Wunderbar Together campaign.
In this event: What if. Maybe. It could be. Where does seeking the truth slide into imagination? Three writers conjure compelling stories of Jewish generations past and present. Michael Levitin writes of a perpetually cuckolded man who seeks wholeness by resolving the mystery of a postcard sent from the Siberian gulag. In a creative nonfiction narrative, German writer Katja Petrowskaja searches not only for her ancestors but their meaning to her and each other. Sarah Stone depicts a loving, dysfunctional half-Jewish family of performers, scientists, and activists who long to wake up the world but must first rescue each other, with a little help (and sometimes hindrance) from the occasional ghost or god.
