Novelist Lawrence Wright shares his new thriller, The End of October, about a viral pandemic that upends the world—written uncannily before COVID-19. His research for the novel led him to work with virologists and infectious disease experts who are currently developing vaccines for COVID-19. He’s joined in conversation by book columnist Greg Changnon.

David Kwan is the editor and producer of Binah, featuring remarkable artists and thinkers who’ve come to speak at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco as part of their Arts & Ideas program.
