The event is free, but advance registration is strongly encouraged. Registration can be completed here:

Oren is the winner of both the Los Angeles Times’ History Book of the Year Award and the National Jewish Book Award (both for “Six Days of War: June 1967” and “The Making of the Modern Middle East”), as well as a celebrated historian and diplomat. With “Swann’s War,” he returns to his first love, fiction writing, bringing his immense creativity, intelligence, imagination, historical perspective and expertise to this unique crime novel. A native of West Orange, New Jersey, he splits his time between Tel Aviv and Los Angeles.

In “Swann’s War,” Oren turns his attention to World War II and delivers a page-turning, historical mystery novel, filled with powerful imagery, masterful storytelling and layered, unforgettable characters.

“We are filled with pride to welcome Michael Oren back to JCC MetroWest. Michael and his family have been fixtures at our JCC and we are always thrilled to have this accomplished West Orange native back home. We can’t wait to see him once again in person. This is an event that is not to be missed,” said Katy Strulson, director of community engagement and development at JCC MetroWest.

JCC MetroWest is located at 760 Northfield Avenue in West Orange, New Jersey.
