GEORGE ELLENBOGEN, BA’55

George Ellenbogen, BA’55, is the author of A Stone In My Shoe: In Search of Neighborhood, a recently published memoir about growing up in one of Montreal’s historically Jewish areas.

Ellenbogen’s book chronicles life in the tight-knit community, which supported its own shops, institutions and daily Yiddish-language newspapers, from the time of his parents’ arrival in Canada through his own childhood and adolescence in the 1940s and ‘50s.

Ellenbogen is also the author of four books of poetry, the most recent of which, Morning Gothic: New and Selected Poems, was published in 2007.
