GROWING UP JEWISH IN SMALL TOWN AMERICA: A MEMOIR
2011 Abernathy House Publishing
Trade paperback $18.00
Award-winning author, Elaine Fantle Shimberg, best known for her numerous books on health subjects and family issues, has now written her memories of growing up in the 1940s and 1950s in a small Iowa town with only thirty-two Jewish families and has done so with humor and honesty. Fifty-two photos illustrate a time gone by.
"Growing Up Jewish in Small Town America is a charming and revealing memoir that you don't have to be Jewish to love...With delicious comic timing, an ear for dialogue, and an eye for detail, Shimberg captures both the tenderness and difficulties of finding common ground in a diverse childhood."
