Narratives of Trauma and Recovery Post October 7

Wednesday, August 7, 7:30 PM

Author and Book photo

Award-winning Israeli novelist and clinical psychologist Ayelet Gundar-Goshen will discuss the impact of trauma in her literary work and the power of storytelling in her therapeutic work after October 7th.

In her new novel, The Wolf Hunt, the lives of an Israeli family based in the Silicon Valley are shattered after a terror attack on a local synagogue. The novel is an exploration of the fault lines in a community, a school, and a family, as an Israeli mother begins to suspect her teenage son of committing a terrible hate crime as revenge.

Working with terror victims in Israel after October 7, Gundar-Goshen discovered that the same tools used by writers to create imaginary stories could be useful for people trying to survive a horrific, unimaginable reality. By turning a chaotic reality into a well-constructed story, by telling the story from beginning to end, the victims of trauma can create meaning and begin to heal. Book signing to follow.
