New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), in collaboration with the Newark Public Library, will present Philip Roth Unbound, a weekend-long festival that will celebrate, challenge and explore the life, legacy and work of novelist and Newark-native Philip Roth, on what would have been his 90th birthday weekend.

NJPAC will host a three-day series of entertaining and engaging events, featuring over forty of the most prominent writers, actors, artists, journalists and public intellectuals. Designed to appeal to audiences of all backgrounds, whatever their level of familiarity with Roth's work, the program will include star-studded readings, conversations, comedy, controversy and debate that will explore the significance and impact of Roth's unique literary legacy, and use his writing as a springboard to explore the broader questions it raises about life in America today.
