Fania's Heart: A Birthday Card in Auschwitz


The Book of Life’s Canadian Correspondent Anne Dublin spoke to author Anne Renaud after she won the 2018 Canadian Jewish Literary Award for Fania’s Heart, a Holocaust picture book for older readers. It’s the true story of a heart-shaped birthday card created in Auschwitz at great personal risk by women prisoners, from scraps of fabric, stolen materials, and glue made out of bread and water, for the 20th birthday of fellow prisoner Fania Landau Fainer. The real heart is now in the Montreal Holocaust Museum, and it’s one of the few surviving objects created by prisoners of Auschwitz. Be sure to check out this documentary, which was the inspiration for Renaud to write this book.

For a book about Fania, aimed at teen readers, see Paper Hearts by Meg Wiviott.

Meet Me at the Well


Before I moved from Massachusetts back to Florida, I visited with Jane Yolen and Barbara Diamond Goldin to talk about their joint book of original feminist midrash, Meet Me at the Well: The Girls and Women of the Bible. We sat down in Jane’s sunny kitchen and they just let it all pour out; I hardly needed to ask any questions!

I’d love to hear about YOUR favorite Biblical women, so please do call our voicemail at 561-206-2473 or leave a comment at bookoflifepodcast.com.

Blog Tour 10th Anniversary!

Ten years ago in 2009, the Sydney Taylor Book Award committee dreamed up the brilliant idea of celebrating each year's gold and silver medalists with a blog tour: a virtual book tour in which authors and illustrators appear on a variety of Jewish and literary blogs during a celebratory week soon after the annual winner reveal.
