In Conversation with author Sivan Slapak and Sebastian Schulman


Join us for a warm, intimate evening where local author Sivan Slapak will discuss her debut book, Here Is Still Here, with writer, editor, and translator Sebastian Schulman. 

Books will be available for purchase at the event from Bibliophile, and the author will be glad to sign copies.


Where can one go when Here Is Still Here?

Raised in a family of post-war Jewish refugees in Canada, Isabel feels displaced from an early age. She's searching for love, purpose, and the true meaning of home. From Montreal to Jerusalem and back again, she navigates checkpoints and borders, home and exile, milestones and disappointment, love and loss.

Sivan Slapak's debut collection is an intimate and layered exploration of human connection and the complexities of identity. Told with compassion and wit, Here is Still Here is a poignant reminder that however far you may go, you remain yourself.

This event is FREE and includes a glass of wine while supplies last!
