Co-author of children’s book about Holocaust to speak Tuesday in Frisco
August 19, 2017
Gail Danziger Klein, co-author of the children's book "Music of the Butterfly: A Story of Hope," will be at Next Page Books and Nosh for a public presentation from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday.
Klein wrote the book that focuses on the story of her mother, a Hungarian survivor of Auschwitz, with co-author Ann M. Leis and illustrator Patricia Hardwick.
Because of the book's topic, Tuesday's presentation could come with extra weight given recent violence at a neo-Nazi and white supremacists' protest earlier this week in Charlottesville, Virginia.
With Klein's mother serving as the narrator, the book tells the history of the Holocaust in a "gentle" way, according to the authors, "one that teaches children the importance of being upstanders rather than bystanders, using one's coping skills when faced with challenges today and the dangers of bullying."
