Inspiring Book Launch for Gloria Levi

It was standing room only at the Gabriola Library on August 13, 2019 for the book launch of Gloria Levi's memoir, Kissing an Old Dream Goodbye. 

This poignant memoir deals with the struggles of a young couple as they try to integrate into the newly created State of Israel in the 1950s. It is multilayered account that pits her Zionist idealism against the realities and complex challenges that she and her husband encounter in this very particular time in the history of the Jewish State. It’s a fascinating, intimate story, beautifully told.

A poignant memoir of a young family's journey as they try to integrate into Israeli society in the 1950s.
“The story of a remarkable woman whose life intersected with a critical time in Jewish history. Levi captures the struggles of a young woman striving for personal identity and family balance, with the backdrop of a similarly young country striving to find its identity. She writes with insight, humour, honesty and passion, in a book you won’t be able to put down.” — Mark L. Winston,Professor and Senior Fellow at Simon Fraser University’s Morris J.
