94 Maidens participates in Cardinal O’Hara High School’s Adopt a Book Program!

94 Maidens was proud to participate in Cardinal O’Hara High School’s “Adopt a Book” program! Students chose to read 94 Maidens during their summer break and author Rhonda Fink-Whitman appeared today to discuss the book with the students. The reception was awesome! The students said that they found the book to be very meaningful and that they related to the story and the characters in many ways. Plus, they now know more about the Holocaust than they did before. Rhonda says that makes her soooo happy because that’s exactly why she wrote it!!  Many thanks to Cardinal O’Hara and Gravy Wars author, Lorraine Ranalli for the kind invitation to participate!!

#FiveStarFriday!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! By S. Vanhoose Top Contributor: TOP 1000 REVIEWER on September 23, 2018
 
“This was a great book and an easy read. The best thing about this is that it brings the Holocaust to the present. Rather than being a detached history lesson, it connects it to the present, as we trace the journey of a “real” modern-day woman as she uncovers her tragic family history. The book is written on a middle school to high school level, but is also a good read for adults. It also touches on a few issues that are not mentioned much in many other Holocaust memoirs. Great book to add to your collection of WWII memoirs!”
 
Thank you, S. Vanhoose! Your awesome 5-star review on Amazon.com is so very thoughtful, insightful, and much appreciated! I understand that you are a H.S. teacher and I hope you’ll consider using 94 Maidens in your classroom! Be sure to download the free Teacher’s Guide at www.94maidens.com. Thanks again! ~ Rhonda
