Join us in launching Gift of Time: Discoveries from the daily ritual of reading with my father by Frances Prince.
Frances Prince began reading to her Holocaust survivor father David Prince in mid-March 2020 as a form of care during the pandemic.
As they read a number of memoirs by Holocaust survivors, David reflected upon his Holocaust experiences and life as a Polish Jewish university student in post-war Munich. Together, they engaged in many conversations emerging from David’s recollections from the past, and Frances memorialised their family dialogue by penning Gift of Time.
The Gift of Time book launch features an in conversation between Joanna Murray–Smith and Frances Prince followed by a Q & A.
With lifelong expertise in Jewish Studies, Holocaust education and leadership in Victoria’s interfaith community, Frances Prince currently serves as vice president of the Australian Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) Victoria, on the committee of the annual Lodz ghetto commemoration and as an executive member of the Jewish Community Council of Victoria (JCCV).
Joanna Murray-Smith is a prolific writer whose acclaimed plays have been produced and translated all over the world. She has also written novels, libretti and screenplays. She is the recipient of many awards, including the inaugural Mona Brand Award for a lifetime’s work.
