Meet the Author – Calgary Jewish Book Festival – December 7, 2014
“Before I met Adam Tredman, I thought only sailors swore. At least that was the way it was in the books I was starting to read. His swearing made almost as big an impression on me as his poetry. And then there was his religion, which, so far as I could tell, was an essential part of him but went mostly unobserved. He and his family were the first Jews I had ever known, and for the longest time I thought all Jews must be like Adam Tredman, speaking as if they’d all just walked out of the desert and were making up for lost time.” – Excerpt from Sons and Fathers
I will be appearing at the Jewish Book Festival being held at the Calgary Jewish Community Centre on December 7 from 4:00-5:30pm.
I’ll be discussing some of the themes in Sons and Fathers and reading from the novel. Here’s more info:
