Pieces of the Past, The Holocaust Diary Of Rose Rabinowitz launched on April 9th at the Berney Theatre at the Winnipeg JCC. It so happens that that was the date in 1940 Germany invaded Denmark - I wrote about that in my books, Lisa and Jesper. The Jewish Federation organized a wonderful program with a choir and beautiful singers, a collage of pictures from my book and then my presentation. I talked about how I came to tell the story of the Jewish war orphans who came to Canada after the war, and also why I chose to write about the Warsaw Ghetto and the hidden children of the Holocaust. My daughter Rebecca organized the whole thing and made it all possible as part of her job at the Rady. The turn out was fantastic. Afterwards

I'm really amazed that Pieces of the Past has made the bestseller list at McNally Robinson's Books for the 4th week in a row. And before the book even launches. Which, by the way, is coming up fast, this Tuesday, April 9, 7. PM, at The Berney Theatre, JCC, Winnipeg.

Pieces Of The Past has made the McNally Robinson Bestseller list for the third week in a row! Just a reminder that the launch is coming up next week- April 9, at the Berney Theatre, 7 PM. Very busy trying to figure out what to read. I'll also be reading to students on the 9th and the 10th in the afternoons, also at the Berney Theatre.
