Join PJ Library in Tidewater as we welcome Erica Perl for a fun-filled virtual LATKEPALOOZA!
Erica Perl will share her new book, the Ninth Night of Hanukkah, with us and will lead us in song and movement activities that will get the whole family up and moving. Erica writes picture books, novels, chapter books, plays, and articles. Her books have received accolades and awards, including the National Jewish Book Award, and the Sydney Taylor Honor. They've also landed on State Book Award lists, “Best Books” lists, and library lists. Erica is a frequent speaker at schools, libraries, conferences, and festivals. Her author visits - in person and virtual - are energetic, educational, and engaging. This may be because she has a theater background, a law degree, and an ice cream truck driver's license!
More about the Ninth Night of Hanukkah: It’s Hanukkah, and Max and Rachel are excited to light the menorah in their family’s new apartment. But, unfortunately, their Hanukkah box is missing. So now they have no menorah, candles, dreidels, or, well, anything! Luckily, their neighbors are happy to help, offering thoughtful and often humorous stand-in items each night. And then, just as Hanukkah is about to end, Max and Rachel, inspired by the shamash (“helper”) candle, have a brilliant idea: they’re going to celebrate the Ninth Night of Hanukkah as a way to say thanks to everyone who’s helped them!
This book is not only a heartwarming and fun story, it’s also an invitation to join in a beautiful new Hanukkah tradition!
