The Book of Life sees the world through new eyes in this Jewish New Year season. We speak to Mordicai Gerstein, award-winning author of The White Ram, a picture book midrash about the sacrifice of Isaac. We hear from Rabbi Cary A. Friedman, author of Wisdom from the Batcave, about how Batman can teach each of us to live a super, heroic life. Musician Yoshie Fruchter describes his CD Beyond the Book, about the inner lives of biblical personalities. And Brynn Olenberg Sugarman tells of her award-winning picture book Rebecca's Journey Home, which is based on her own daughter's adoption. Links to more info on these books and CDs is available at The Book of Life at www.jewishbooks.blogspot.com.
