The New York University Bookstore will host author Scott Korb for a reading of Life in Year One: What the World Was Like in First-Century Palestine (Riverhead Press, 2010; paperback, 2011) on Tuesday, March 1, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at its 726 Broadway location (between Astor Place & Washington Place).

Korb, a part-time faculty member at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, is a writer and documentary editor whose interests range from religious belief and its popular expressions, to food and culture, to studies of race and gender within a 19th-century American context. Life In Year One chronicles the time period in which Jesus lived, using ancient texts, archaeology, and the accounts of both ancient and modern historians. 

Korb is the coauthor, with Peter Bebergal, of The Faith Between Us (Bloomsbury, 2007), a series of personal essays that explores the possibility of living faithfully without belief while considering the meaning of God. Korb is also associate editor of the Harriet Jacobs Family Papers (UNC Press, 2008), the first papers collection of a woman held in slavery. His current work is America, Meet Islam (Beacon Press, 2013), a closely observed narrative account of the inaugural class of Zaytuna College, the nation’s first four-year Muslim college.
