The Red Leather Diary Part 2


Lily Koppel's book The Red Leather Diary combines the writings of a Jewish teenager named Florence Wolfson with the memories of the same woman at the age of 90. In Part One of The Book of Life's Red Leather Diary series, we heard the Spring 2009 talk Lily gave at Aston Gardens Senior Living center in Parkland, Florida. Now, in Part Two, we speak directly with Lily about her book.

This is fantastic! Terrific interview. Lilly is great - and what a compelling story. For a writer to find such a treasure is a fairytale in itself. My daughter was excited to know about your interview - she has heard all the buzz about the book. We can't wait to read it!
