Some very quick things:
- I did it! I successfully defended my doctoral dissertation, “Family, Survival, and Hope: The Persistence of Resistance and Rescue in North American Holocaust Literature for Children and Teens, 1940-2020.” I graduate with my Ph.D. in Holocaust & Genocide Studies on August 28 from Gratz College. I am now Dr. Krasner! My parents would have been so proud.
- Ethel’s Song: Ethel Rosenberg’s Life in Poems garnered a great review from the Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books!
- I have to rename a candy store in my work-in-progress, because I called it Sid’s and in the Weequahic section of Newark (NJ), everyone knew Syd’s as a hot dog and hamburger place. Any suggestions for a new name? Hymie’s? Meyer’s? Abie’s? Sol’s? Izzy’s?
Have a good week, everybody!
