Let’s Talk About Anti-Semitism and THE BOOK OF ELSIE, a guest post by Joanne Levy

I have a book releasing today called The Book of Elsie. While book release days are normally a big celebration, I wish I hadn’t written Elsie. No, that’s not exactly true. I wish I hadn’t felt I had to write it.

I’m sorry to be a downer already – one paragraph into this post. But the reality is that I am Jewish and hate crimes and acts against Jews are on the rise. Some might say they’re on the rise againbut I say still. They’ve never gone away. They just don’t always make the news.
