Never Say a Mean Word Again (Podcast)
The newest episode of The Book of Life podcast, hosted by librarian Heidi Estrin, features a live interview from Book Expo America with author Jacqueline Jules and illustrator Durga Yael Bernhard, creators of the picture book Never Say a Mean Word Again. The story takes place in medieval Spain in the Muslim city of Granada and was inspired by a legend about how the Jewish royal advisor Samuel Ha-Nagid “tore out” a man’s angry tongue and gave him a kind one instead. It is a powerful story of conflict resolution, as relevant today as it was centuries ago, and very timely for the High Holidays.
