Judith is a young woman who lived in Israel for a decade, was a peace activist there, and defines herself as “left-wing.” Yet in graduate school back in Canada she discovers that vilification of Israel is the expected norm. As a result, she is marginalized by the faculty and her peers, and her life begins to unravel. Dr. Nora Gold’s book, Fields of Exile, is the first novel about anti-Israelism on campus. This is a moving novel about love, betrayal, and the courage to stand up for what one believes. It was picked by The Forward as one of “The 5 Jewish Books to Read in 2014.″ Please join Dr. Gold for a presentation and Q&A about the novel. Free event. Light refreshments provided.
