Video Message from Helene Wecker

Helene Wecker, author of this year’s Pass the Book title, The Golem and the Jinni, shared a special video message for Durham!

In it she laments her lack of an Oshawa Generals jersey, explains how part of the story came from her own ethnic background, and points out that Canada’s history of Jewish and Arab immigration is similar to that of the U.S., so feel free to imagine the characters running around Toronto instead of New York!

Helene looks forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts as Durham reads and shares The Golem and the Jinni!
