The George Washington University Department of English and Jewish Lit Live (JLL) proudly present a reading by our very own Faye Moskowitz on Thursday, April 27, 2017 (4/27/17) at 7:00PM in the Marvin Center Amphitheater.

This event is FREE and OPEN to the public. First come- first serve seating. Please direct all inquiries to jewishlitlivegwu@gmail.com

At our final event of the semester, Jewish Literature Live will be honoring Faye Moskowitz as she presents her novel And the Bridge is Love. Born in 1930, Faye spent her early years in Detroit and Jackson, Michigan. In Michigan, she worked for the Democratic Party, becoming county vice-chairman, until her husband’s job took the family to Washington. There she enrolled at GW, earning her B.A. at age forty.

She went on to earn a Master’s degree and later her PhD ABD from GW. She taught middle school for 12 years before returning to GW to teach and direct the creative writing program. Ten years later she became department chair, a position she served in for 8 years.

Faye has taught Jewish Literature Live for nine years and has consequentially helped give many George Washington students and members of the DC community a unique experience. Aside from her illustrious career at The George Washington University as a professor where she has received such awards as the First Outstanding GW Woman Award, Faye has published several books including A Leak in the Heart and Whoever Finds this: I Love You.

Faye Moskowitz has had a profound impact on the George Washington community and the wider DC community as well. Please join us in honoring her on April 27th.
