Noa Yedlin is a bestselling Israeli author, recipient of the Sapir Prize (the Israeli Man Booker) and the Prime Minister’s Literature Award, and author of the novels Track Changes, House Arrest, People Like Us, The Wrong Book, and Stockholm, which was published in English by Harper Collins in 2023. Yedlin is also the creator of a prize-winning television series based on Stockholm – which in turn has been re-made for television in Germany and in Sweden. Another of her bestselling novels, People Like Us, is currently being developed for television, and her novel House Arrest was adapted for the stage and performed at Beit Lessin Theater in Tel Aviv, where she lives. Yedlin was named by Haaretz Magazine one of “66 Israeli Women You Should Know.”

Where do crazy ideas come from? What kind of research is required to write about Nobel prizes and dead bodies, and how do you turn your own novel into a successful TV series? Yedlin will take us behind the scenes of the fictional craft and show us clips from the television adaptations of her book.

In addition to this lecture, Yedlin will give a masterclass on "Writing for the Page and Screen" in Joe Brown Hall at 3:30 p.m. Feb. 28. Her visit to UGA is presented by the Department of Comparative Literature and Intercultural Studies and the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts. It is part of the Willson Center's Global Georgia public events series.
