Holocaust fiction is tough to write and there are few who write it better than New York Times and International bestselling author of THOSE WHO SAVE US, Jenna Blum. Jenna Blum sits down with Halli in her first official interview to launch her new book THE LOST FAMILY, on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the interview posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
Also the author of the well-received novel THE STORM CHASERS and the novella, THE LUCKY ONE in GRAND CENTRAL, Jenna Blum is one of Oprah’s Top 30 Women Writers. She is also the 2005 winner of the Ribalow Prize, awarded by Hadassah Magazine and adjudged by the late Elie Wiesel. Based in Boston where she has long taught fiction and master novel workshops at the famed Grub Street Writers since the school’s founding in 1997, Jenna earned her MA in Creative Writing from Boston University, where she taught creative writing and journalism and was a fiction editor for AGNI Literary Magazine. From 1993 to 1997, Jenna interviewed Holocaust Survivors for the Steven Spielberg Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation, an interview done back then from which Jenna’s latest book of historical fiction, THE LOST FAMILY derives.
THE LOST FAMILY, the story of the long-term effects of the Holocaust on the family dynamic is a book in which Jenna Blum once again expertly plays with her reader’s hearts, their minds, their souls in a brilliantly-rendered tour de force of a family saga, a searing tale of love, loss and renewal in the shadow of the ghastly ghost that haunts survivors of Hitler’s Nazi, Germany.
Holocaust fiction, books, authors, Nazi, Germany, Hitler, the 60s, the 70s, the 80s, the Holocaust, when Jenna Blum is Halli’s guest for the hour on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
