Join Saeed Teebi for a conversation about his debut book. Teebi’s gripping collection of nine short stories dives into the lives of Palestinian immigrant characters dealing with distinct circumstances, along with their attempts to assimilate and the guilt of leaving family behind. The stories submerge the reader into this unique immigrant experience in Canada, while exploring underlying universalities.

By the Lake Book Club offers six Tuesday-night events, between February and December featuring leading Canadian authors in conversation with Humber College graduates and alumni. Each in-person event includes a reading, discussion, audience Q&A and book-signing. Virtual events are subtitled live and provide online viewing and audio.

Cost: $10 - $28
