Norman Manea on Life, Literature and Moral Dilemmas, Old and New / Feraru Conferences Online

Updated: Oct 28, 2021


The guest of the November 4, 2020 edition of our Feraru Conferences online series was novelist, essayist, and Bard College Professor Emeritus NORMAN MANEA, one of the most celebrated Romanian authors of the past decades and the indispensable moral compass in a world going astray. Looking back to a long and eventful life, the Holocaust survivor and best-seller writer shared, with the trademark ironical, unassuming wisdom, the findings of a lifetime search of truth, beauty, and justice. Enjoy watching!
