Internationally recognized as one of the most important literary and civic voices in Israel today, David Grossman will be the exclusive guest of New Israel Fund of Canada for the Sixth Annual Shira Herzog Symposium. Together, we’ll explore the passion and commitment of major change-makers in Israel and why Grossman takes the risk to fight for change in Israel.

Born in Jerusalem in 1954, David Grossman is a leading Israeli writer of his generation and his work has been translated into more than thirty languages. He is the author of eight internationally acclaimed novels and two powerful journalistic accounts, as well as a number of children’s books and a play. His latest book, Falling Out of Time, was released in March 2014 to wide critical and reader acclaim. The genre-defying drama tells the story of bereaved parents setting out to reach their lost children. Concise and elemental, Falling Out of Time is a powerfully distilled experience of understanding and acceptance, and of art’s triumph over death.
