My Yiddish Vacation by Ione Skye (Plus a Giveaway!)
Ione Skye solidified her role as teen idol when she played Diane Court in “Say Anything…” alongside John Cusack in 1989. … She recently added “author” to her list of many titles with the release of her children’s book, “My Yiddish Vacation,” an adorable picture book that introduces kids to the wonderful world of Yiddish.
What was your inspiration?
The inspiration for the book comes from my love of Yiddish expressions and the interest I have in my past. I have been compelled since childhood to write. My relationship with my older brother, who Sammy is based on, has always been complex, loving, and deep. The same goes for my relationship to my grandparents, who are also in the book.
