Judie Oron Goes to Washington

Author Judie Oron speaks at a previous event
Author Judie Oron will be speaking at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, next Monday, April 23. (Click here to read an article about the upcoming talk, including more details about the time and location.) The focus of her talk will be the experiences that led to her writing The Cry of the Giraffe, a novel about an Ethiopian Jewish girl who is trying to rejoin her family in Israel. The book's protagonist, Wuditu, is based on one of Judie's adopted daughters, and this book trailer paints a vivid picture of her experiences:

Judie is an articulate, passionate speaker and this is a topic very close to her heart, so this will certainly be a captivating discussion!
