Shani Boianjiu was chosen by author Nicole Krauss as one of the National Book Foundation’s “5 Under 35” award winners. At the age of 18, she entered the Israel Defence Forces, and at 26, she is one of the youngest writers on Random House of Canada’s prestigious Bond Street Books list. Boianjiu will present her debut novel, The People of Forever Are Not Afraid, about young women in the Israel Defence Forces. Constantly preparing for a moment that may never arrive, they are perpetually waiting—for womanhood, orders, war, peace.
