Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Adam Gopnik, Sayed Kashua
Moderator: John Freeman

Adam Gopnik left Montreal at 24 for the wonders of New  York, and he’s made a brilliant life there and in Paris as a New Yorker staff writer, and is well-known known for his quirky personal narratives. But the lure, especially these days, of returning to Canada has been on his mind. Sayed Kashua, given the Israeli Prime Minister’s Prize in 2005 for his often satirical writing, finally found it impossible for his family to live as Arabs in the Jewish state, and moved with his wife and two kids to…Illinois! In Native, he offers humorous and at times painful anecdotes about his own life as a Hebrew-speaking Palestinian in Jerusalem, and as a Muslim Arab in today’s American Midwest. This is a conversation you won’t want to miss!
