It’s in the can. A-List Canadian Film-maker Nikila Cole has wrapped a movie based on my short story, “My Father, Joe.” It’s being premiered in Toronto, September 12, at the Toronto Independent Film Festival. In October, it’s scheduled to be shown in Montreal, where the story takes place. “My Father, Joe” is taken from my book of memoirs, Escape From Mount Moriah, which is about a kid trying to make a go of it in Montreal after escaping Nazi-occupied France. Eighteen vignettes make up Escape From Mount Moriah, which was awarded the Excellence Award from the Independent Publishers Association. The book was published by ComteQ.
