Koshland Professor in Jewish Culture and History, will engage in conversations with noted literary biographers including New Yorker writer and Colette biographer Judith Thurman, rock critic Greil marcus - who will speak about a new book on Bob Dylan - and former New Republic book editor Ruth Franklin now writing a biography of Anne Frank.

The Stanford community will be invited to participate in these discussions together with students enrolled in the class who will later that same day meet with the invited guests.
