Book launch for Shanghai Escape!

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

Come one, come all!! I’m so excited to finally be officially launching my new book, Shanghai Escape. The event will take place on Thursday, December 5 - 6:30 presentation; 7:30 refreshments and book signing. We will be at the Kiever Synagogue, 25 Bellevue Ave., Toronto. For those of you unfamiliar with this synagogue, it is one of the oldest in the city - dating back to 1912 - and in an area of Toronto (Kensington Market) that was home to many immigrants coming from Eastern Europe. I have to admit, I had never been inside the synagogue until recently. It’s quite beautiful!!

I will be talking about the book and the history behind it. And I’m also thrilled that our special guests will be Lily Lash - the woman I write about in Shanghai Escape, and Olivia Chow - MP, Trinity Spadina.

All are welcome! Come and enjoy this very special evening!
