Get to Know a Faculty Member in Attendance: Dorit Sasson

At the 2019 Pittsburgh event, Dorit will be critiquing nonfiction manuscripts in the categories of memoir, self-help, how-to, and narrative nonfiction.

The memoir is Sasson’s story of how she dropped out of college and volunteered for the Israel Defense Forces in an effort to change her life—and how, in stepping out of her comfort zone and into a war zone, she discovered courage and faith she didn’t know she was capable of. The first memoir to share a female immigrant’s experience with serving in the Israel Defense Forces, Accidental Soldier is the powerful account of one woman’s journey to become her own person.
