American Jewish Historical Society
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Join us for a book launch, reading, and screening to celebrate the translation of Yitzhak Gormezano-Gorens groundbreaking novel Alexandrian Summer into English.

For the occasion, we will premiere a documentary by renowned filmmaker and NYU alum Amit Goren (Year 66 was Good for Tourism), the son-in-law of Yitzhak Gormezano-Goren, who has put together a new documentary especially for this event. The film is based on the trip of the Gormezano-Goren family – based both in Tel-Aviv and in LA.

We will be honored to host, Egyptian-born, Israeli-based novelist and playwright Yitzhak Gormezano-Goren for this event, as well as Yale Comparative Literature Professor Hannan Hever, for a reading and conversation after the screening.

Alexandrian Summer will be the first translation from Gormezano-Gorens acclaimed work into English. A key figure in Mizrahi culture in Israel, Gormezano-Goren has written numerous novels, plays, and has founded the groundbreaking academic journal Direction: Eastward. First published in 1979 in Hebrew, Alexandrian Summer became a milestone in Mizrahi literature and culture in Israel: it tells the story of two Jewish families living their frenzied last days in the cosmopolitan social whirl of Alexandria just before migrating to Israel in 1951.

Presented in partnership with the Mizrahi Film Series, the Taub Center for Israel Studies, The Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies Department, and the Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, New York University.
