Helene Wecker grew up in Libertyville, Illinois, a small town north of Chicago, and received her Bachelor's in English from Carleton College in Minnesota. After graduating, she worked a number of marketing and communications jobs in Minneapolis and Seattle before deciding she wanted to write something longer than a press release. Accordingly, she moved to New York to pursue a Master's in fiction writing at Columbia University. She now lives near San Francisco with her husband and daughter. Her first novel, THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI, will be published in April 2013 by HarperCollins. You can follower her on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.

The JFNNJ has planned a full and fascinating roster of book-related events over the next few months, including a talk on the history of New York’s Jewish Lower East Side, a screening of the 1920s silent film THE GOLEM, and a Syrian cooking demonstration....

“Sometimes men want what they don't have because they don't have it. Even if everyone offered to share, they would only want the share that wasn't theirs.”
Helene Wecker, The Golem and the Jinni

“All of us are lonely at some point or another, no matter how any people surround us. And then, we meet someone who seems to understand. She smiles, and for a moment the loneliness disappears.”
Helene Wecker, The Golem and the Jinni

“A man might desire something for a moment, while a larger part of him rejects it. You'll need to learn to judge people by their actions, not their thoughts.”
Helene Wecker, The Golem and the Jinni
