Canadian Jewish Literary Awards Meet the Author Series

Sunday, May 5, 2024, 1-3 pm - Featuring Heather Camlot, 2023 Canadian Jewish Literary Awards winner

The notorious Dreyfus Affair - France's turn-of-the-century political scandal that falsely accused and imprisoned a Jewish army captain - may have happened 125 years ago, but its themes of anti-Semitism and media bias remain just as relevant today. Learn about Heather Camlot’s award-winning Young Adult story The Prisoner and The Writer, told from the perspectives of both Alfred Dreyfus and Emile Zola, whose commitment to truth, justice and equality changed the world. Co-presented by the Canadian Jewish Literary Awards. Presented in partnership with The Israel and Golda Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies. Join us in-person at the Miles Nadal JCC or virtually!
