Jonathan Safran Foer Biography

Jonathan Safran Foer is the author of the international bestseller, "Everything Is Illuminated," which was published when he was only 25. Hailed as the "Debut of the decade," and translated into 35 languages, it was named Book of the Year by The Los Angeles Times and has won numerous awards, including the Guardian First Book Prize, the National Jewish Book Award, and the New York Public Library Young Lions Prize. More than 1,500 people voted online for "Everything Is Illuminated" in the first People's Choice Award, sponsored by JBooks.com. It was named the decade's best work of Jewish fiction. A movie based on the book was released by Warner Independent in September 2005, starring Elijah Wood as Jonathan Safran Foer, Eugene Hutz as Alex, with Peter Saraf as producer and Liev Schreiber directing.

His second novel, "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," went straight onto national and international bestseller lists. It received the "Literature for Life Award," the Victoria and Albert Museum Award, and the Prix des libraries du Quebec, and was shortlisted for the International IMPAC prize. "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" was also adapted for film. The movie was released in 2011 and starred Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock and Thomas Horn.

Named one of Rolling Stone's "People of the Year" and Esquire's "Best and Brightest," Jonathan Safran Foer has had stories published in The New Yorker, The Paris Review and Conjunctions. He is the editor of a bestselling anthology of writing inspired by the bird boxes of Joseph Cornell, "A Convergence of Birds." His libretto "Seven Attempted Escapes from Silence" was performed by the Berlin State Opera House in September 2005.

Over the course of 2006, Mr. Foer visited animal farms across the country -- from small, family-run organic farms, to factory farms that produce more waste than Los Angeles -- in an effort to get at the most fundamental question about food, which is not "Can this be eaten?" but "Should this be eaten?" He documented his road adventure and the ecological crisis he observed in a nonfiction book called "Eating Animals," which was an instant New York Times and international bestseller. In 2010 he was included on The New Yorker's "20 under 40" list of the best young writers in the US.

In September 2016, he released the novel "Here I Am".

Foer also serves as a board member for Farm Forward, a nonprofit organization that implements innovative strategies to promote conscientious food choices, reduce farmed animal suffering, and advance sustainable agriculture.

Jonathan Safran Foer Speaking Topics

  • Reading Between the Lines with Jonathan Safran Foer

    Combining several formats -• book reading, audience interaction, and literary investigation -• Jonathan delights audiences with an insightful, behind the scenes analysis of his bestselling novels.

  • Eating Animals

    Like many young Americans, Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between enthusiastic carnivore and occasional vegetarian. As he became a husband, and then a father, the moral dimensions of eating became increasingly important to him. Faced with the prospect of being unable to explain why we eat some animals and not others, Foer set out to explore the origins of many eating traditions and the fictions involved with creating them. The resulting book, "Eating Animals," is part memoir and part investigative report. In the words of the Los Angeles Times, it places Jonathan Safran Foer "at the table with our greatest philosophers." The stories of how the book came to be, and the shocking information that he learned, make for eye-opening conversation.
