My Thoughts on My Basmati Bat Mitzvah

A Review From A Young Indian Reader

This diverse book shows the strengths and weaknesses of a young girl who is figuring out who she wants to be. When I first heard of this book, I knew from the title that it involved Indian and Jewish heritages, from the point of view of a girl about my age. I didn’t know much about Jewish heritage before reading, but I could tell quickly that my thinking and actions are very much like Tara’s, the main character. For example, I love spicy food and I enjoy imitating Indian heroines, just as she does.

Nell Beram on Yoko’s Eightieth Birthday

Coauthor of Yoko Ono: Collector of Skies

Hold on to your hat: Yoko Ono, who was born in Tokyo on February 18, 1933, turns eighty today. I remember reading a quote from a few years back—damned if I can find it now—in which Yoko said that she didn’t think she had accomplished much in her then seventy-something years of life. It’s because my collaborator, Carolyn Boriss-Krimsky, and I so feverishly disagree with her on this point that we took it upon ourselves to tell her story by way of Yoko Ono: Collector of Skies.

Carolyn Boriss-Krimsky on Yoko’s Eightieth Birthday

Coauthor of Yoko Ono: Collector of Skies

Can you believe? Yoko Ono turns eighty on February 18. But by all accounts, she’s not aging. How is that possible? Wait. Maybe that’s the point. Aging is supposed to be the last frontier. So it makes sense that Yoko would blow away any preconceptions about it.

After all, her expectations have been building since those hearts and cupids went up all over town on the day after Christmas.
