Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Orhan Pamuk called Snow “my first and last political novel.” Set in the small city of Kars in northeastern Turkey, it tells a story of violence and tension between political Islamists, soldiers, secularists, and Kurdish and Turkish nationalists. An international sensation, the novel has been adapted for the stage in France by Blandine Savetier and Waddah Saab and translated by Taylor Gaines. After an American premiere staged reading, Pamuk joins in conversation with Frank Hentschker, executive director of the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center.
Presented with the Martin E. Segal Theatre and Cultural Services of the French Embassy, New York, with the support of FACE Contemporary Theater.
