“My only crime is to have been born a Jew”Captain Alfred Dreyfus

The Dreyfus Affair may have happened more than 125 years ago but its themes of antisemitism, religion vs politics, and bias in the media remain just as relevant today. Heather will discuss the Dreyfus Affair and her writing journey

The Prisoner and the Writer: When a Jewish army captain is falsely accused of treason and sent to prison, a writer uses his pen to fight for justice. This powerful middle-grade story written in verse with full-page illustrations is told from the perspectives of both Alfred Dreyfus and Emile Zola, two men whose courage changed the world. The true story, published in time for the 125th anniversary of “J’Accuse …!”, acts as a reminder that a person committed to truth, justice and equality must stand up and speak out against prejudice for themselves — and for others.
