The Red Leather Diary, Part 1


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. Lily explains how she found, first the diary, and then Florence herself, in a Spring 2009 talk she gave at Aston Gardens Senior Living center in Parkland, Florida, sponsored by the Parkland Library and the Anne Slater Memorial Fund.

This podcast is Part One and is a recording of Lily's presentation before a large audience. In Part Two you will hear a one-on-one interview with Lily Koppel.
