Hei­di Estrin, of the Book of Life pod­cast, spoke with Nechama Liss-Levin­son, author of When the Hur­ri­cane Came to New Orleans, which won the 2009 Syd­ney Tay­lor Man­u­script Award (cur­rent­ly unpub­lished, but will hope­ful­ly be avail­able soon!) last sum­mer for the pod­cast series. As Hei­di notes, this inter­view is unfor­tu­nate­ly timely…listen to the pod­cast here.

Nechama is also the author of When a Grand­par­ent Dies: A Kid’s Own Remem­ber­ing Work­book for Deal­ing With Shi­va and the Year Beyond and Remem­ber­ing My Pet: A Kid’s Own Spir­i­tu­al Remem­ber­ing Work­book for When a Pet Dies.
