My Book Selected by Fig Tree Lit

I am pleased to report that a prominent Jewish publisher, FIG TREE BOOKS, have included a chapter from my upcoming memoir SUMMONS TO BERLIN in their February 2022 newsletter.  (The text of this blog post continues below the image.)

FIG TREE BOOKS take their company name from a phrase President George Washington included in a 1790 letter to the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island. You may learn more about that history here.

If you’re interested in books on Jewish themes, I encourage you to take a look at the FIG TREE BOOKS list.

And, to read Chapter 13 of my SUMMONS TO BERLIN, please go here.

My thanks to FIG TREE BOOKS for highlighting my work.
