Conversation and Q &A with Ariela Freedman about Léa

16 October at 19:30 21:00 EDT

A conversation and Q & A with Ariela Freedman about her most recent novel, Léa, moderated by Linda Shohet. Based on famed Quebec activist Léa Roback (1903-2000), the novel brings to life a heroine emboldened by political struggles that resonate to this day. Léa, born to a large Jewish family and raised in a small French Catholic town, navigates languages and cultures to fight for social justice and change for women, for unions, and for any cause where she noted injustice. Ariela will discuss what drew her to Roback, why she chose to focus on her early years, and why Roback remains a revered figure in Quebec social justice circles.
