Book Launch: Julie Orringer presents The Flight Portfolio
In conversation with Nathan Englander
Reception to follow

The long-awaited new work from Julie Orringer – Greenlight neighbor and best-selling author of The Invisible Bridge – takes us back to occupied Europe in this gripping historical novel based on the true story of American journalist Varian Fry’s extraordinary attempt to save the work, and the lives, of Jewish artists fleeing the Holocaust. The Flight Portfolio opens at the Chagalls’ ancient stone house in Gordes, France, as the novel’s hero desperately tries to persuade the artists of the barbarism and tragedy descending on Europe. Masterfully crafted, exquisitely written, impossible to put down, this is historical fiction of the very first order, and resounding confirmation of Orringer’s gifts as a novelist. Orringer presents her book in conversation with fellow neighbor and novelist Nathan Englander, followed by a reception to celebrate the book's launch.
