Hebrew Field Trip
A group of Einav's students from her Israeli Society through Literature and Media course went on a field trip last week to a Stanford Hebrew class for a lecture by Assaf Gavron. Gavron is an Israeli author who writes modern short stories, mainly about Israeli society these days. They read two of his stories as preparation.
Gavron's books have been translated to several languages. They have won awards such as the Bernstein Prize for The Hilltop (2013), Prix Courrier International (France) for Croc Attack (2012), "Buch für die Stadt" (Cologne, Germany) for the same novel (2012), and the Israeli Prime Minister Award for authors (2011).
