During this presentation, A Chorus of Voices, Readings from the Saviour Shoes and Other Stories, Carol Lipszyc will read excerpts of short stories from her above-noted book, a collection that reveals an arc of historical experience of Jewish child and teen life during the Shoah. A daughter of two child survivors, Carol will inform with visuals, context, and aspects of the writing process of the four stories, which were adapted from oral testimonies and reconstructed into narratives of trauma.

Carol has published across genres, including: a book of short stories, The Saviour Shoes and Other Stories; a book of poetry, Singing Me Home, both with Inanna Publications in Canada; arts-based educational articles in international journals; and a Literacy/ESL Reader with chants, entitled People Express, published by Oxford University Press. Her anthology of poems on the Heart, The Heart is Improvisational, will be published by Guernica in Spring, 2017 and features, along with Carol's title poem, 74 poems by poets from Canada, U.S. and Europe. Earning her doctorate in education at OISE, Carol is currently an Associate Professor at State University of New York, Plattsburgh, teaching English teacher education and writing. Her scholarship has focused on creative writing pedagogy and process, building pre-service teacher identity and autobiography, and narratives of trauma.
