EDWARD BERENSON, Author: The Accusation: Blood Libel in an American Town
On Saturday, November 22, 1928, Barbara Griffiths, aged 4, strayed into the woods surrounding the upstate village of Massena, New York. Hundreds of people looked everywhere for the child but could not find her. At one point, someone suggested that Barbara had been kidnaped and killed by Jews, and as the search continued, policemen and townspeople alike gave credence to the quickly-spreading rumors. The allegation of ritual murder, known to Jews as "blood libel," took hold.

"A chilling investigation of America's only alleged case of blood libel, and what it reveals about antisemitism in the United States and Europe."

BARBARA J. OSTFELD, Author - Catbird: The Ballad of Barbi Prim

In Catbird: The Ballad of Barbi Prim, the world meets an insightful, opinionated eight-year-old who’s already taken a few steps toward becoming a pioneer—but also a shadow of her quirky self. Although she’s corroded—sometimes literally—by a toxic but familiar social atmosphere, her love of singing propels her to become the first ordained woman cantor in 3,000 years of Jewish history. A family crisis exposes old and enduring wounds, but she begins to rescue herself—by diligently going to therapy—and embarks on an imperfect but perpetual metamorphosis, becoming the well-coiffed heroine of her own story. Barbara Ostfeld shows us that we are all brave pioneers—at becoming our true selves.

A Palestinian-American activist recalls his adolescence in Gaza during the Second Intifada, and how he made a strong commitment to peace in the face of devastating brutality in this moving, candid, and transformative memoir that reminds us of the importance of looking beyond prejudice, anger, and fear.

"Captivating."--Robin Wright, The New Yorker
