Friends of the Encinitas Library's Third Wednesday Series on Wednesday, Wednesday 18th, 2011 presents author Kathi Diamant at 6:30 p.m. to discuss her book "Kafka’s Last Love."
Kathi Diamant is an award-winning author, TV and radio broadcaster, and adjunct professor at San Diego State University, where she leads the Kafka Project, the official international search to recover a lost treasure, the missing writings of literary genius Franz Kafka.
Her book, "Kafka’s Last Love: The Mystery of Dora Diamant", based on two decades of research, has been published in the U.S. and U.K., Spain, France, Russia and upcoming in German, Chinese, Portuguese, and Serbian translations.
As director of the Kafka Project at SDSU since 1998, Kathi has led the international effort to find the last writings of Franz Kafka which were confiscated by the Gestapo in 1933. Her research is responsible for recovering original Kafka letters, found, ironically, in San Diego. In 2012, she will follow up two previous research trips, conducted in Berlin in 1998 and in Poland in 2008.
