Book Review – Circe

Cover image for Circe [large print] / Madeline Miller.

By Madeline Miller.

Fans of Greek mythology stories are going to love this one! In this novel Circe, the witch known as the villainous seductress from Homer’s Odyssey is recast as a victim of the corrupt society of the Gods, doing all she can to make a home and find herself. Powerful, poetic, and not afraid to show the ugly parts of womanhood.

Book Review – Questions I am asked about the Holocaust

Cover image for Questions I am asked about the Holocaust / Hédi Fried ; translated from the Swedish by Alice E. Olsson.

By Heidi Fried

An Auschwitz survivor, Heidi Fried has spent her life educating young people about the Holocaust, in hope that teaching others to never forget what happened means it won’t happen again. In her book, Fried answers some of the questions she has been asked. It’s moving, powerful, sincere, and the question and answer format makes it easy to absorb. A brief snapshot of a period of time that will, hopefully, never be repeated.
