Stephen Schecter - Ph. D, sociologist, poet, lecturer, performance artist, and retired sociology professor from the Université du Québec à Montréal, Schecter has written six books, numerous essays, short stories and poems in both English and French. His book-length narrative poem, David and Jonathan (Robert Davies Publishing, Montreal, 1996), won the Montreal Jewish Public Library’s J.I. Siegal award for English literature on a Jewish theme, and was nominated as a QSPELL poetry prize finalist.

He has delighted audiences across North America with his readings, lectures and performances. Please take a look at Schecter's latest book, and Mantua Books' newest release, Grasshoppers in Zion: Israel and the Paradox of Modernity - an uncompromising look at Israel’s increasingly untenable position in the Middle East.
