Today, my Virtual Book Tour visits with Dorit Sasson at Giving Voice to the Voiceless. Dorit and I have never met in person, but have developed a wonderful working relationship through email correspondence. We both share a passion for multicultural education and harbor a strong Jewish identity. We also decided to tell our respective stories by writing candid memoirs.
After reading my book, MAY THIS BE THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE, Dorit sent me an email that stated,
“I just finished your book – in one word, wow! Thank you so much for sharing your personal story with me/the world. I appreciate the courage it must have taken for you to give voice to your powerful story. I was with you every step of the way – I really felt for you and your family. What a journey you’ve been on – so much drama and yet, so many lessons to be learned. From one educator to another, I admire your tenacity to deal with so much uncertainty.There are so many rich layers to your memoir and so many lessons to be learned.”
Dorit sent a list of interview questions. My answers are found on her wonderful website, Giving Voice to the Voiceless. I encourage you to take some time to acquaint yourself with her site.
