Inscribe Yourself in the Book of Life

Please inscribe yourself in The Book of Life's "Book of Life" by signing our interactive guestbook!

Why get inscribed?
> It will give Heidi a lot of naches.
> It will help Book of Life listeners get to know each other.
> You can let us know about your favorite Judaic book, CD, or website.
> If you are an author, musician, etc. you can let us know about YOUR book, CD, or website!

And if you're too shy to upload your own photo, just use an image of a book or CD you want to recommend, or a screenshot of your website! Remember, you can also link to a YouTube video!

SHOW NOTES:
In this episode of The Book of Life, a show about Jewish people and the books we read, we celebrate klezmer music!

> We visit the
Judaica Sound Archives at Florida Atlantic University and hear some of their historic klezmer samples. By the way, if you have old Judaic record albums in your attic, they will be happy to take them off your hands! Click here to find out how and to print a mailing label.

> We talk to
Joan Betty Stuchner, author of the picture book The Kugel Valley Klezmer Band (also known in Canada as Shira's Hanukkah Gift).

> We meet
Yale Strom, a "one man klezmer industry," who tells us about his books, films, travels, and performances, all relating to klezmer music.
