Author Joshua Cohen on His New Novel, Moving Kings

Tuesday, Jul 18, 2017 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

In a conversation with Joe Meyers of the CT Post, author Joshua Cohen discusses his new novel Moving Kings which is about faith, race, class, and what it means to have a home. It interweaves the housing crisis in America’s poor black and Hispanic neighborhoods with the world’s oldest conflict, in the Middle East. 

"Cohen shows an impressive knowledge of life in the cab of a moving van and in the ranks of the Israeli Defense Forces. He touches on two wars and two combat zones (counting brief allusions to Afghanistan). He is funny and caustic and has a marvelous snap in his dialogue."—starred Kirkus Review
