Nadia Kalman is a 2012-2013 Literature Fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts. The Cosmopolitans, her first novel, draws upon her family’s experiences as Soviet immigrants in suburban Connecticut. It won the Emerging Writer Award from Moment magazine and was a finalist for the Rohr Prize in Jewish Literature. This warm and exuberantly comic debut tells the story of the Molochniks, Russian-Jewish immigrants in suburban Connecticut. Daughters wed, houses flood, cultures clash…and the past has a way of emerging at the most inconvenient moments (and in the strangest ways.) Equal parts Jane Austen and Gogol, The Cosmopolitans casts a sharp and sympathetic eye on the foibles and rewards of family and life in America. Fee: $8; Members, $6
