In this lively reading and conversation, a novelist, a short story writer, and a poet discuss what it is to write Jewish. What is it to be Jewish in the modern world? Is there a specifically Jewish way of writing—or of thinking? What are the issues that absorb Jewish writers today? Is there something in the culture that can speak to larger global concerns? Join novelist Gary Barwin, short story writer Kathy Friedman, and poet Adam Sol, three acclaimed contemporary Canadian authors writing out of an international Ashkenazi Jewish experience, as they explore these questions and present powerful, comic and moving excerpts from their latest books. Moderated by Cynthia Good.
