Events | Jewish Cemetery Tour and Writer’s Workshop
Sunday, November 6, 2011. 11:30 am.
For something different this Halloween season, A Bit off the Top invites you to participate in a tour of the Baron de Hirsch cemetery and a creative writing workshop inspired by this experience. Learn about the fascinating figures buried at this site with Ron Finegold, former Head Research Librarian at the Jewish Public Library. Reflect on this Jewish space in a two-hour workshop lead by Montreal-based writer, Yael Tischler, recently returned from Oxford University’s Creative Writing Summer School.
Please bring pens and notebooks. Please also bring umbrellas and appropriate shoes in case of rain.
