Michael Chabon on Writing


“Writing for me grows out of reading. When I was a child I wanted to become a writer because I loved to read so much. I loved the books I was reading so intensely that I wanted to make my own.” -Michael Chabon

In this intimate video, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author delves further into his origins as a writer, focusing on his first real writing studio, a cramped crawlspace of a work room in his mother’s house.

His latest novel, Telegraph Avenue,  comes out on September 11, and we’re so excited to be hosting him on October 14 as Opening Night of the Hyman S. and Freda Bernstein Jewish Literary Festival! Tickets go on sale September 1.
