We were delighted that our book was selected to be featured at the Ann Arbor Jewish Book Festival. When we learned that of all the featured juried books, the Department of Judaic Studies at Eastern Michigan University chose ours to be the one they sponsored, we felt even more honored. Our delight continued November 15, the evening of our scheduled presentation. The cold and rainy weather did not hamper a great turnout. A crowd of close to forty individuals came to Third Mind Books, filling its floor space to capacity. The presentation by Julie Ellis, Nancy Szabo and Phil Barr resulted in so many questions that the event went well past closing time. The owner of Third Mind Books was so moved by the authors stories that he felt compelled to come up to the podium and express how meaningful he found this presentation. He described the impact that the Holocaust had for him growing up despite not being a second-generation descendent. We were very grateful to see that several audience members had previously been to our speaking events. They shared that they wanted to hear more stories from our book and buy additional copies as gifts. Thank you to all our supporters.
