Eva Salomon’s War: author talk with Gabriela Goliger

gg eva salomon's war 300 x 300

Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 2 pm Congregation Emanu-El — Set in the turbulent times of Mandate Palestine, Eva Salomon’s War, tells of a young Jewish woman’s love affair with a British policeman. As friction between Britain and the Jews intensifies, Eva falls under ever greater pressure to choose sides and becomes the target of extremists. This is a story of love, loss, betrayal and resilience. The questions raised about moral choices in that complex era resonate in our own day.

Gabriella’s first book, Song of Ascent won the 2001 Upper Canada Writer’s Craft Award. Her novel Girl Unwrapped won the City of Ottawa 2011 Literary Award for Fiction. She was co-winner of the 1997 Journey Prize, a finalist for this prize in 1995, and she won the Prism International Award in 1993.She has also been published in a number of journals and anthologies including Best New American Voices 2000 and The New Spice Box: Canadian Jewish Writing. Besides being a writer, Gabriella is an activist with the progressive Zionist movement, Peace Now.
