2018 award recipients Eli Jacobs and Karen Wilchek with Dr. Ilana Blumberg and Prof. Kolbrener
The Dave Greber Non-Fiction Social Justice Writing Award was given to two recipients this year at our Biannual International Conference that was held from May 13-15 and featured such notable writers as Deborah Lipstadt, Rachel Kadish, Ilana Kurshan, Alicia Ostriker, and Erika Meitner.
Winners Eli Jacobs and Karen Wilchek read from their works to a very appreciative and impressed audience of friends, alumni, and students of the Shaindy Rudoff Program in Creative Writing.
The award was established by Dave’s partner, Shirley Dunn, to honour the memory of Dave Greber and his wishes to study in Israel. Dave was a prolific Canadian, working writer who was committed to the rigorous professionalism of non-fiction freelance writing.
