Don't miss an unforgettable conversation with Judy Batalion as she discusses her highly anticipated book The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler's Ghettos.
One of the most important stories of World War II, already optioned by Steven Spielberg for a major motion picture: a spectacular, searing history that brings to light the extraordinary accomplishments of brave Jewish women who became resistance fighters—a group of unknown heroes whose exploits have never been chronicled in full, until now.
Judy Batalion is the author of White Walls: A Memoir About Motherhood, Daughterhood and the Mess in Between. She has written for the New York Times, Vogue, the Washington Post and many other publications. Prior to her writing career, she was an academic and is fluent in both Yiddish and Hebrew. Born and raised in Montreal, she now lives in New York with her husband and children.
Judy Batalion will be in conversation with Belle Jarniewski, Executive Director of The Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada.
This event is presented by The Calgary Jewish Federation, The Jewish Federation of Edmonton, The Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, Rady Jewish Community Centre, The Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada, and HarperCollins Canada.
Official bookselling partners: McNally Robinson, Owl's Nest, and Audrey's
