Thanksgiving Shout-Out Special
Or click MP3 File to start your computer's media player.
In this episode of The Book of Life, a show about Jewish people and the books we read, we celebrate Thanksgiving with a special bonus episode!
> We hear from Todd Herzog, a Jewish musician/singer/songwriter from Phoenix, Arizona. Todd's spiritual pop music has a thankful quality about it that fits in well with Thanksgiving. Also check out Todd's MySpace page.
> We meet Maryann Kovalski, illustrator of the award-winning picture book Rivka's First Thanksgiving by Elsa Okon Rael.
> We learn about the Library Blogathon at the Feldman Children's Library (home base of The Book of Life). If you are a fan of books and libraries, you need to check out this blog! Available beginning November 21, 2007.
> Throughout the show we send shout-outs to various listeners who have sent in their comments and feedback to The Book of Life during the year. Do YOU have something to say? Be sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Background music is provided by The Freilachmakers Klezmer String Band. Additional background music for this episode is provided by Brian Smith at The Laughing Librarian's "BibDitties" (copyright 2006).
