INTERFAITH FAMILY FUN

storytime & launch for Nonna's Hanukkah Surprise > NOV 29


Join author Karen Fisman for some Hanukkah treats and entertainment as she reads from her new book, Nonna's Hanukkah Surprise
 
ABOUT THE BOOK
 Rachel loves visiting her Italian grandmother during the holidays, though Nonna celebrates Christmas and Rachel and her family celebrate Hanukkah. This year, Rachel plans to share Hanukkah with Nonna and the cousins. But when she leaves her new Hanukkiah on the plane, it's Nonna who steps in to save the day.
 
"This well-crafted story of an interfaith family focuses on the Hanukkah celebration, lightly blending Italian food with latkes at a dinner on the first night…A lovely choice." Kirkus Reviews
 
"References to King Antiochus, panettone, lasagna, and latkes are seamlessly woven into the story, and young readers will readily absorb new information along with affirmations of tolerance and acceptance… [A] lovely addition to the holiday canon." Booklist
