Tonight in San Francisco, A Wider Bridge co-sponsors a Jewish Community Library program with gay Israeli author David Ehrlich, who will talk about his latest book “Who Will Die Last” (Tuesday, October 15 at 7 pm.)

16270566Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking, David Ehrlich’s recent collection of short stories, Who Will Die Last, is an original and moving work of fiction. Ehrlich’s themes relate to gay life in Israel, the pull of loneliness, and the power of community, while Israel’s history, landscape, and conflict provide the backdrop. Founder of Jerusalem’s well known literary café Tmol-Shilshom, David Ehrlich has been an active participant in Israel’s cultural scene and has been a witness to the changing views in Israeli society towards LGBTQ people.

David Ehrlich has published two previous books of short stories in Hebrew, 18 Blue and Tuesday and Thursday Mornings. His blog posts are featured on The Arty Semite and My Jewish Learning’s author blog series, Members of the Scribe.
