May 2016 Mt Scopus Secondary library hosted it’s first-ever literary lunch in conjunction with the Melbourne Jewish Writers Festival.

Guest author Anna Ciddor’s just-published Young Adult novel,The Family With Two Front Doors is based on the story of her own family in Lublin, Poland. An enthusiastic audience of students and staff heard about Anna’s research in Poland and  the publishing process. During question time,  Anna also explained that for her family members who did not survive the Holocaust, the  book is a memorial to them as she brings their childhoods to life.

We look forward to more literary lunches and to future collaboration with MJWF.
