Details

Toronto-based author Lily Poritz Miller will be on hand at Indigo to sign copies of her first novel, In a Pale Blue Light, published this fall by Sumach Press.

Described as “a labour of love, shrouded in pain” by Farley Mowat, In a Pale Blue Light is a story of loss, defiance and change emerges from the magnificent setting of Cape Town in the late 1930s through the outbreak of World War II. Young Libka Hoffman is struggling with the loss of her father and the social conventions that frown upon her relationships with her most trusted friends. Libka’s exploration of socially forbidden territory eventually brings her to expulsion from her school and ostracism by her peers. Told in moving and lyrical prose, In a Pale Blue Light conveys an authentic and rarely achieved insight into Jewish life in South Africa during the tumultuous times around World War II.

Lily Poritz Miller was born in Cape Town and is the author of three plays, one of which, The Proud One, won the Samuel French national award. To read more about Lily's storied career you can visit her website: www.lilyporitzmiller.com.
