This tale of a six­ty-year love affair exam­ines the age-old ques­tion of why we love the peo­ple we do. Elayne Klas­son was born in Chica­go and now lives on the cen­tral coast of Cal­i­for­nia. Love is a Rebel­lious Bird is her debut nov­el. She has had a long career in acad­e­mia and jour­nal­ism both in Cal­i­for­nia and in the Caribbean. In her sev­en­ties, she has pub­lished her first nov­el to excel­lent crit­i­cal review — win­ning and being short-list­ed for sev­er­al prizes for con­tem­po­rary and debut fic­tion (includ­ing being a final­ist for The Gold­berg Prize for Debut Fic­tion from the Nation­al Jew­ish Book Awards).



This event is presented in collaboration with the the Jewish Book Council. Elayne will present her book and answer questions. To purchase books in advance, our bookstore partners online: Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW) and Page 1 Books (5850 Eubank Blvd NE). 

Upon registering, you will be sent a link for the Zoom event.
