"The Adventures of Saul Bellow" is the first-ever documentary film on the man described by the critic James Wood as the “greatest of American prose stylists in the twentieth century.” Marking the centennial of his birth and the tenth anniversary of his death, the film features original interviews along with previously restricted footage and takes the viewer to the locations that shaped Bellow and his fiction. Registrants will be able to stream the film via a special link 24 hours in advance of the Q&A with director Asaf Galay.
This program is a partnership with the American Writers Museum in Chicago as part of the Yiddish Book Center’s Decade of Discovery.
This live event will be presented via Zoom and will stream live on the Yiddish Book Center's Facebook page. Space is limited. If you’d like to reserve a virtual seat in the Zoom audience—which will allow you to submit questions—registration is required.
