Books and Bagels

03 Dec @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

December 3: “Indian Horse” by Richard Wagamese and The Story of a Life by Aharon Appelfeld will be reviewed together by Professor Gefen Bar-On Santor, well known for literature courses at the Soloway JCC. Gefen will review these two books on the theme of a childhood interrupted. In Wagamese’s book the hero, a young Northern Ojibway boy, survives residential school with the help of hockey. Applefield’s memoir relates how his childhood ended at the age of seven when the Nazis occupied his home town in 1941 but builds a new life as a writer.
