Mid-Week Field Notes

Four quick things this week:

  • I will now be a featured speaker about my middle-grade novel in verse, 37 Days at Sea: Aboard the MS St. Louis, 1939, at a Yom Hashoah event at the Mercer County Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights event on April 7, 6 pm. Joining me on the panel are former U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum director Scott Miller and St. Louis survivor Hans Fisher. Stay tuned!
  • I received good news about my bio in verse revisions last week. It pays to dig in and do the hard work. More to come on this in the next few weeks.
  • ICYMI: Sydney Taylor Book Award winners were announced on Monday. The Jewish Book Council announces National Jewish Book Award recipients today.

Stay healthy and safe!

    Kudos for doing these events, Barbara! Your reputation and scholarship – and now this book! – make for excellent programming. I’m so glad there continues to be interest in learning about the Shoah. Please let Taylor know if you would like us to set up a discount coupon code (for a limited time, eg 1 week before and 1 week after each event) that you can distribute in the promos for such events to be used at karben.com.

    Wishing you success with your program,
