Piquant Pizza, Perfect Prose!

PROSE.EVE.01Age proved to be no bar for a group of English language women writers who on Monday showed off a huge diversity of work before a packed  and enthusiastic audience in northern Israel.

The mixed team of Anglo émigrés who performed at the Karmiel English Speakers Club chose themes spanning an idyll based in rural Wales to the first use of penicillin, and from a  Bible-based fantasy to coping with the vagaries of old age and a black comedy in a supermarket! The event was dedicated to the late Kitty (Kathleen) Kolker, who settled in Karmiel after emigrating from the U.K. and whose Holocaust novel, Freda is available from the club library.

The formation of the group, which meets at the KESC, was first suggestedPROSE.EVE.07 by Molly Kaplansky whose work was read by actor and drama teacher, Sheila Silver. Others taking part were Helen Gordon, Bruria Joffe, Leila Lazarus and myself. The group is facilitated by Sylvia Walters who co-ordinated and chaired the event. Special thanks are due to KESC chairman, Jack White for his warm welcome and to the gallant team who served refreshments after the show.
