We’re looking forward to celebrating Caroline Stoessinger’s new biography of Alice Herz-Sommer, A CENTURY OF WISDOM, at a book reception this evening hosted by Ambassador Ido Aharoni. Enjoy this tribute to Alice:
Ann Kirschner, author of the acclaimed, Sala’s Gift, delivers the definitive biography of Josephine Marcus Earp, who became the common-law wife of famed lawman and gambler, Wyatt Earp. Based on in-depth historical research, LADY AT THE OK CORRAL (HarperCollins Hardcover; March 2013) traces the life of Josephine and Wyatt from their first days in the Arizona Territory, to the boomtowns of San Diego and Alaska, ending up in Hollywood and the early days of Western movies. Publishers Weekly just gave the book a great review, calling it an “admiring and vivacious biography.” Here is the full review: http://www.publishersweekly.com/978-0-06-186450-6
In this week’s Publishers Weekly we wrote an article for the Soapbox section that provides publicity and marketing tips and advice for authors who don’t deserve to get lost in the shuffle. This advice is especially important now, after the recent announcement of the merger of Random House and Penguin. Please read the article:
Caroline Stoessinger, author of A CENTURY OF WISDOM: Lessons from the Life of Alice Herz-Sommer, the World’s Oldest Living Holocaust Survivor, just announced that all profits from book sales between now and 12/31/12 will go towards the Alice Herz-Sommer Scholarship Fund at the Music Academy of Jerusalem. In this inspiring book, Alice shares with Caroline her extraordinary story and message of humanity, hope, the
importance of music, long life and peace. A perfect message as we start the holiday season!
