    Hi Shirley. You came and spoke to my class in West New York a few year’s back. I have my students read “The Story of Blima” every year, along with “Night”. I ordered a copy of “My Mother’s Shoes” today.

    • Hello Marcel–Of course I remember you and your class! I believe you will find MY MOTHER’S SHOES, which reveals the impact of my mother’s experience, an absorbing read. I welcome your comments! All Best–Shirley
