Deborah, Golda, and Me: Being Female and Jewish in America

Description of new work

BOOKS by .................... Letty Cottin Pogrebin

Fiction
The leftist son of Holocaust survivors who promised his mother on her deathbed that he would marry a Jew and raise Jewish children falls in love with a black activist talk show host.
An ebullient, deeply engaging novel about the enduring ripple effect of family secrets and the triumph of sisterly love.
Non-fiction
Pogrebin's advice about friendship and illness -- infused with sensitivity, warmth, and (believe it or not) humor--is interwoven with boldly candid stories from her own journey through the land of the sick and her sometimes imperfect interactions with friends of hers who are sick or suffering.
In this insightful and wonderfully personal book, a bestselling author writes with unflinching honesty and uncommon cheer about the feelings that accompany the universal experience of growing older.
The struggle to integrate a feminist head with a Jewish heart can lead to a greater appreciation of both identities and the rewards of a passionate, well-examined life.
In this landmark book, Letty Cottin Pogrebin draws on nearly 150 interviews, personal experience, and current research to explore every aspect of friendship in all its pleasurable and problematic complexity.
A penetrating inquiry into the nature of the traditional family, the diverse forms of current families and how to create "democratic families" that effectively prepare children for life in the modern world.
Growing Up Free provides a new blueprint for raising children in today's world of challenge and change.
Getting Yours is a down-to-earth, informative, and compassionate guide to the working world, a world that can serve your needs as well as you have always served the needs of others--if you know how to make it happen.
How To Make It In A Man's World is the 1970s classic that instructed women who wanted an exciting career, a husband, children, a fascinating social life, challenges, rewards and money (simultaneously) on how to get it in the Mad Men era.
Consulting Editor
The classic, award-winning, bestselling collection of nonsexist stories, songs, and skits that has captivated and influenced three generations of children.

Editor
A child-cheering parent-pleasing book, Stories for Free Children reaffirms the joyful spirit of girls and boys who are free to be themselves and be true to themselves.
