I had the fortune to attend a talk given by the world famous writer, Amos Oz. He is probably the most well-known Israeli writer - his books have been translated into more than 30 languages and he was won several honors and awards. The Israeli writer, Amos O Our town's wonderful library staff organized this meeting with Amos Oz as part of the Hebrew Book Week celebrations. I have read a few of his books that have been translated into English but I must admit that I have not yet been courageous enough to read any of his books in Hebrew - the language that they were written in. My children's books, the newspaper and a few websites is as far as I will dare!
