Wednesdays with Writers with Jennifer Steil, Joanne Rocklin and Mother’s Day Hosanna

May 6, 2020

Social distancing in this COVID19 era has been detrimental to authors. As part of our Be the Star You Are! Disaster Relief Outreach program, Be the Star You Are!® has collaborated with the Authors Guild to showcase the new books launched by many authors from around the country in a variety of genres. For the next few months, make sure you are tuned in to both StarStyle®-Be the Star You Are!® on Wednesdays at 4pm PT for “Wednesdays with Writers “as well as  Express Yourself!™ airing on Sundays at 3pm PT for “Super Smart Sundays”, both broadcasting right here on the Voice America Network, Empowerment Channel to learn about these fantastic authors and books. It’s a giant read-a-thon. 

Cynthia Brian interviews Jennifer Steil about her new book, Exile Music which explores an overlooked slice of World War II history, telling the story of a family of Jewish Viennese musicians who find sanctuary in Bolivia in 1939. Steil offers a beautiful meditation on the things we all hold dear - family, friendship, home.

In segment two, author Joanne Rocklin showcases her newest picture book, Good Guy, Bad Guys, about playing pretend—and the joy of trying out being “bad” or “good.” This charming picture book is a timeless celebration of imagination and make-believe, showing readers that kids can safely try out good and bad personas as they play.

What’s a hosanna? It’s whatever makes you feel special. Cynthia Brian reads a passage about her Mother from Be the Star You Are!® 99 Gifts for Living Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference as a homage to the sacrifices and dedications of Moms everywhere!

Join our party!

Bio: Jennifer Steil is an award-winning author and journalist. Her new novel, Exile Music, forthcoming from Viking on May 5, 2020, follows the lives of a family of Austrian Jewish musicians who seek refuge from the Nazis in Bolivia in 1938. 
Her most recent novel, The Ambassador’s Wife (Doubleday 2015), won the 2013 William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition Best Novel award. The novel has received much acclaim, notably in the Seattle Times, Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and The New York Times Book Review. Jennifer’s first book, The Woman Who Fell From the Sky (Broadway Books, 2010), a memoir about her time as editor of the Yemen Observer newspaper in Sana’a, was hailed by The New York Times, Newsweek, and the Sydney Morning Herald. https://www.jennifersteil.net/work/the-author-jennifer-f-steil
