Jacqueline Dembar Greene, In Full

SHOW NOTES:

When I first attempted to post this interview, the audio got cut off halfway through. Here, with my apologies, is the full episode. Jacqueline Dembar Greene talks about the Rebecca Rubin character she created for the American Girl series (click here for the books, the dolls, and the accessories, and click here for Rebecca games!), and about her High Holidays picture book The Secret Shofar of Barcelona, illustrated by Doug Chayka.

Asking Forgiveness


I must apologize and ask for Rosh Hashanah forgiveness from my listeners, and especially beg the pardon of Jacqueline Dembar Greene, because I've just found that the end of our interview was cut off. This happened with another recent interview, so I'll have to check into the technical side of things here at The Book of Life. I'm hoping that the original interview might still be on my digital voice recorder so that I can reconstruct this episode. However, the recorder is at work and I am at home, so I won't be able to let you know until next week.

In the meantime, let me say that The Secret Shofar of Barcelona (which you didn't get to hear about in the interview as it currently stands) is a terrific book and I highly recommend it!

Two from Jacqueline Dembar Greene

Librarian: 5 Voices


The inimitable QN Podcast (formerly "Quirky Nomads") put out a call for librarians to share their thoughts on their lives' work. I answered that call, and my voice is one of the "5 Voices" on the new librarian-centric episode of QN! Thanks to Sage Tyrtle for the invitation and for the terrific editing. I love the way she's woven the different voices together into a sort of group story.

Take a listen and let me know what you think. And if you'd like to check out more episodes of QN, visit quirkynomads.com.
