Shimmy Shambone Will Not Take a Bath

Shimmy Shambone Will Not Take a BathAt the Seminar on Jewish Story 2014, not only the presenters were authors. I met a few writers in the audience too, and interviewed them during the lunch break. Here are my interviews with authors Helaine Becker and Yael Zoldan.

These two authors represent the breadth of what can a Jewish children’s book can be. Helaine has recently come out with Gottica, a universal fantasy novel with Jewish roots (think Golem), and Yael’s new picture book is Shimmy Shambone Will Not Take a Bath, a story written for an Orthodox audience but with a protagonist any child can relate to.
