Canadian Jewish Literary Award for Yiddish for Pirates.

The Jury Citation for Yiddish for Pirates

I was so very delighted to attend the Canadian Jewish Literary Awards yesterday where Yiddish for Pirates won for Fiction.  Many brilliant and important books honoured in other categories. I was particularly delighted to share the experience with my friend and writing colleague/collaborator of nearly 35 years, Stuart Ross, who won in the poetry category for his marvellous, A Sparrow Came Down Resplendent (Wolsak & Wynn)
