"Truly, you have written a story that makes accessible the reality of existence in Russia, through the eyes of individuals who lived through the various regimes and dictates. It is fascinating and very well told. As I read Vera and Alla's story, I learned more Russian history than I had known from a textbook. That's a big deal, women! You tell the tale with vivid detail and hook us on the two women and their stories, then weave in the history to illuminate their journeys. It is such a necessary book. I am thrilled that the two of you collaborated, as I can see the uniqueness of your personalities come through in the stories, and that, too, makes the book a gem." Margaret Leibfried, Danielson Group consultant
Shoots and Roots
Leslie, Meryll, and Jewish Luck enjoyed a road trip to Madison on July 6 and 7. We presented an interactive talk at the Levy Summer Series, bases on the Jewish Social Services’ theme: “Shoots and Roots.” The topic was made to order for Vera and Alla who are mindful their families’ struggle to ensure their daughters could succeed. Vera and Alla might have enjoyed the discussion about the role of Judaism in their lives and the lives of our audience.
Special thanks to Steve Lipton for his photography.
