Tracey writes a response to Murielís classic novel

AS part of the celebrations for the Muriel Spark centenary, the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities will be hosting an afternoon with award-winning author Tracey Rosenberg in Aberdeen Synagogue on November 4 (2-5pm).

The event will also form part of the programme of events for European Days of Jewish Culture 2018.

Tracey was awarded a grant from Creative Scotland to write a fictional response to Sparkís award-winning Jerusalem-set novel The Mandelbaum Gate.

The fictional response, The Western Wall, tells the story of three modern young women with a range of political and religious outlooks wrestling with their own personal identities and narratives.

Tracey will also host a discussion on the storyís themes.

The second part of the event will be an informal writing workshop.
