About this event

The Strategic Charitable Giving Foundation in collaboration with the Marvin A. Drimer Foundation presents

An Evening with David Grossman: "More Than I Love My Life"

More Than I Love My Life was inspired by the true story of one of David Grossman’s longtime confidantes, a woman who, in the early 1950s, was held on the notorious Goli Otok (“the Adriatic Alcatraz”). With flashbacks to the stalwart Vera protecting what was most precious on the wretched rock where she was held, and Grossman’s fearless examination of the human heart, this swift novel is a thrilling addition to the oeuvre of one of our greatest living novelists, whose revered moral voice continues to resonate around the world.

David Grossman is the author of numerous works of fiction, nonfiction, and children’s literature. His writing has appeared in The New Yorker and has been translated into more than forty languages. He is the recipient of many prizes, including the French Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, the Buxtehuder Bulle in Germany, Rome’s Premio per la Pace e l’Azione Umanitaria, the Premio Ischia International Journalism Award, Israel’s EMET Prize, the Man Booker International Prize, and the Albatross Prize given by the Günter Grass Foundation.

Introduced by Yael Halevi-Wise, Chair, Department of Jewish Studies, McGill University

In collaboration with Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival.
