Australian professor will discuss Jewish authors on March 9

Dr. Leah Garrett of Monash University in Australia will discuss her new book “Young Lions: How Jewish Authors Reinvented the American War Novel” at 7:30 p.m. on March 9 at the Douglass Campus Center of Rutgers University, 100 George St., New Brunswick.

The discussion will focus on American war novels between 1948 and 1961, which were written primarily by and about Jewish soldiers. Garrett explores the impact these ironic, funny, and often irreverent bestsellers had in reshaping the American public’s ideas about war, the Holocaust and the role of Jews in postwar life.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Advance registration is requested by emailing csjlrsvp@rci.rutgers.edu or calling 848-932-2033. For more information, visit BildnerCenter.rutgers.edu.
