Frances Bartkowski

November 15 @ 7:00 pm

Free

Rutgers University Professor Frances Bartkowski will read from her novel, An Afterlife.  This takes place in a small Bavarian town in a displaced persons camp set up by the Allies after World War II.  “Bartkowski delivers a novel that transcends the fiction genre. This work is as detailed and accurate (with brutal and miraculous turns) as the most searing historical documents, folded in a narrative as immediate and vivid as a poetic memoir. The book is written as it must have been lived, with an ear to the ground and an eye to the future.” — Brenda Shaughnessy

Frances Bartkowski has published three books of literary criticism: Feminist Utopias; Travelers, Immigrants, Inmates; and Kissing Cousins, as well as essays and poetry. She has participated in seminars at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and teaches literature and culture at Rutgers University – Newark.
