Sami Rohr Prize ceremony, Jerusalem

I’m currently recovering from the wonderful Sami Rohr Prize ceremony here in Jerusalem, an event that included Syrian food and a killer electric oud. And, of course, a literary crowd packed into the ballroom at the King David Hotel. You can read a bit more about it here, at the Times of Israel, and my speech is here. And I’ll be posting some photos as soon as I get them. It’s a great honor to join the impressive group of writers who have had their careers and lives altered by this prize.
