Critically acclaimed novelist Chris Bohjalian uses his gripping fiction to explore contemporary social issues and how they play out in the lives of ordinary people, as well as to shed light on some of the most important moments in history. His writing delves into such topics as domestic violence, global climate change, gender identity, genocide, adultery, animal rights, adoption, homelessness, mental illness, and human trafficking with equal facility.
Bohjalian is the featured author at the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne’s People of the Book lecture on Monday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m. at the Rifkin Campus. A #1 New York Times bestselling author of 20 books, Bohjalian’s work has been translated into more than 30 languages.
The event is free and open to the public. The author will be available to sign books after his lecture. A reception follows his talk. Thank you to the Dr. Louis & Anne B. Schneider Foundation for its support.
