An event aimed to bring the Canadian Jewish community and the CanLit community together for a discussion on Canadian Jewish historical fiction will take place Nov. 15 from 6 to 8 p.m. on Zoom.

Hosted by York University’s Israel and Golda Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies, the discussion panel features four internationally acclaimed authors: Ayelet Tsabari, David Bezmozgis, Norman Ravvin and Nessa Rapoport.

The authors will be interviewed by York Professors David Koffman (Department of History) and Sara Horowitz (Department of Languages, Literatures & Linguistics) about their writing, the challenges and opportunities of historical fiction writing, the state of Canadian immigrant and minority literature, and about modern Jewish letters.
