Whilst researching the forthcoming tour “Clarice Lispector´s Recife”, Recife Guide came across the New Biography “Clarice,” (Portuguese version) or “Why This World” (English Version), by author Benjamin Moser. After contacting Moser we discovered that by chance he would be coming to Recife to launch the Portuguese version of his book.

In a few days we have managed to arrange for an additional event, and have Moser agree to be involved in the creation of the tour we planned. The tour is still in early stages of development, but should begin operating in early 2010. In the meantime, let us tell you more about the events.

The book signing will be at Livraria Cultura book shop in Recife Antigo from 7pm on Saturday 28th November.

On Sunday 29th November at 5pm Moser will be in Conversation with historian Tania Kauffman at the Jewish Cultural Center of Pernambuco, in the Sinagoga Kahal Zur Israel. The conversation will be about the Jewish influences in the literature of Clarice, and its relation with the mystical aspects of other Jewish authors. Tania Kauffman, expert in Jewish Immigration into Brazil, will also explain that Clarice belonged to a singular historical context in the history of the 20th century.

Event Details:

CLARICE - Judia, pernambucana, brasileira
Sinagoga Kahal Zur Israel, Rua do Bom Jesus 197/203, Recife Antigo.
29 de November (Sunday), at 17:00
