Koffler@IFOA presents Dualities: Tales of Two
International Festival of Authors, Sunday, October 26 at 2pm
Koffler Centre of the Arts is a multidisciplinary arts organization and an independent not-for-profit based in Jewish culture. They engage in dialogue through contemporary arts that have local, national and international resonance. Koffler joins with the IFOA again this year to host an event featuring authors Shelly Oria and Alison Pick, who will discuss their most recent works, which explore the navigation of multiple cultures and faiths. They will be interviewed by Cynthia Good.

Cynthia Good has been in the publishing industry for almost 35 years. She was the first Editorial Director of Penguin Group (Canada) before becoming President and Publisher. When she resigned, she joined Humber College, where she developed the Creative Book Publishing Program. Recently, she stepped down from that position to take on the newly created role of Director, Student & Industry Initiatives. She is the recipient of several prestigious awards, including the Humber Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Arbor Award from the University of Toronto for outstanding volunteer service.

Shelly Oria is an award-winning debut author who earned her MFA in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence College. A MacDowell Fellow in 2012, Oria curates the series Sweet! Actors Reading Writers in the East Village and teaches fiction at Pratt Institute. She is presenting her short story collection, New York 1, Tel Aviv 0, with stories about existential strangeness, otherworldliness and the search for belonging.

Alison Pick is the author of Far to Go, which was longlisted for the prestigious Man Booker Prize, won the Canadian Jewish Book Award for Fiction and was named a Top 10 of 2010 Book by NOW Magazine and the Toronto Star. She is also a noted poet. Pick presents her moving and unforgettable memoir, Between Gods, which explores family secrets and the rediscovered past.

ROUND TABLE: Based on a True Story
International Festival of Authors, Sunday, November 2 at 12pm
Five writers discuss their real-life inspirations and the directions these inspirations led them in. George Fetherling will participate in this round table, as well as host and moderate.

Julie Angus is a molecular biologist, adventurer, writer and photographer. She is the first woman to row across the Atlantic Ocean from mainland to mainland, and for her explorations she received National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year award. Angus has written for publications including The Globe and Mail, National Post and enRoute. She has authored three books and her photography has appeared in numerous magazines. Angus presents Olive Odyssey: Searching for the Secrets of the Fruit That Seduced the World, in which she travels the Mediterranean to unlock the secrets of this important fruit, resulting in a fascinating history and biography of the olive.

George Fetherling is a prolific poet, novelist, cultural commentator and memoirist. He has published 50 books of poetry, fiction, criticism, history and biography, including the novel Walt Whitman’s Secret and the poetry collection The Sylvia Hotel Poems. Fetherling presents the expanded 20th anniversary edition of his memoir Travels by Night, which discusses literary life in the 1960s.

Catherine Gildiner's childhood memoir Too Close to the Falls was a New York Times and Globe and Mail bestseller. The sequel, After the Falls, was also a bestseller, and her novel, Seduction, was published to international acclaim. She presents the third and final volume of her memoir series, Coming Ashore. Picking up her story in the late ’60s at age 21, Gildiner determinedly blazes her own trail through all the passion and uncertainty that comes with the cusp of adulthood.

Alison Pick is the author of Far to Go, which was longlisted for the prestigious Man Booker Prize, won the Canadian Jewish Book Award for Fiction and was named a Top 10 of 2010 Book by NOW Magazine and the Toronto Star. She is also a noted poet. Pick presents her moving and unforgettable memoir, Between Gods, which explores family secrets and the rediscovered past.

Rudy Wiebe is a novelist, short story writer and essayist. He has been the recipient of many awards, including the Governor General’s Literary Award for Fiction for both The Temptations of Big Bear and for A Discovery of Strangers, as well as the RBC Taylor Prize for his memoir, Of This Earth. Weibe is also an Officer of the Order of Canada. He presents his first novel in 11 years, the lyrical masterwork Come Back. Inspired by his life, it is a rare and beautiful novel about the humanity of living and dying.
