Event description

Description

Join author Bram Presser as he discusses The Book of Dirt, a heart-warming novel about love, family secrets, and Jewish myths. Presser began writing the novel after seeing an article in the local community paper that purported to tell a very different version of his grandfather’s fabled Holocaust story. He subsequently embarked on a seven-year search across four continents to uncover the truth. Come along to hear Presser discuss his search, and where it led him.

‘In The Book of Dirt the fractured lines of memory create a gripping story of survival and love.’ - Leah Kaminsky
