Former Ottawa resident and media spokesperson for the Council of Canadians, Leila Marshy is of Palestinian-Newfoundland heritage; she can tell a good joke, but it bombs… Marshy is looking forward to the Ottawa launch of her new book, The Philistine, at Octopus Books on Wednesday, May 16. Marshy founded the Friends of Hutchison Street, a ground-breaking community group bringing Hasidic and non-Hasidic neighbours together in dialogue. She has published stories and poetry in Canadian and American journals and anthologies. Marshy lives in Montreal and is delighted to be back in Ottawa (where she also spent her formative years) with The Philistine, her first novel.
