The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
75. Finding Home
ANNAHID DASHTGARD, AYELET TSABARI
Moderator: Minelle Mahtani
This conversation of strength and resilience shares how we rediscover ourselves in the face of seemingly insurmountable opposition.
“[M]y story begins with my people,” writes Annahid Dashtgard (Breaking the Ocean). Piercing and nothing short of profound, Dashtgard’s memoir traces the ways her life has been shaped by revolution, political activism and trauma. She’s joined by award-winning Israeli/Canadian author, Ayelet Tsabari (The Art of Leaving), who was compelled to look closely at her Jewish-Yemeni background and the Mizrahi identity she had once rejected. Estranged from her family and attempting to escape her grief, Tsabari, struggled to find a place to belong before settling in Israel, the place she now calls home. This is a conversation of strength and resilience, and how we rediscover ourselves in the face of seemingly insurmountable opposition.
