After a startling debut with Everything Is Illuminated and an equally exquisite follow-up in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Jonathan Safran Foer dove into nonfiction (and his own vegetarianism) with Eating Animals. His latest fiction release, Here I Am, explores familiar bummer themes (the breakdown of a family, struggles with personal identity, the messed up state of our fractured planet) with the irreverent insights and lurid language his readers relish. He’ll be discussing the highly anticipated novel (his first in 11 years) and more with host Steven Winn at the Nourse Theater this week. Event proceeds benefit 826 Valencia’s College and Career Readiness program scholarships.
