I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Barbara Bietz of the truly wonderful website/blog, Jewish Books for Kids. As a Jewish author, this was a meaningful one for me. As you may or may not know, Leah, one of the main characters in ALWAYS ANTHONY, is Jewish and sometimes discusses her family traditions. There is also an important lesson in the book focusing on “teshuvah” (Hebrew for “repentance” and “return”), which is central to the story’s theme of bullying and forgiveness. The interview doesn’t just focus on Leah’s background — it discusses so much more. I hope you enjoy!
