About the author
Some of us have been fortunate to share the table with her during a WAT Book Program or event, including our recent September 2021, luncheon. Especially memorable were the September 2015, program when author Melissa Fay Green presented her book The Temple Bombing and the March 2017, premiere of The Temple Bombing at The Alliance Theatre based on that book which WAT attended as a group.
Below are profiles with hints of what her memoir holds in store.
When Janice Rothschild Blumberg was born in 1924, George Gershwin had just performed his “Rhapsody in Blue” for the first time. In Atlanta, the old synagogue building belonging to The Temple was still located at South Prior and Richardson Streets, near the future site of the main stadium for the 1996 Olympic Games.
Ninety-seven years later, Blumberg is an accomplished historian and has been described as “a living Atlanta treasure.” The widow of famed mid-century Atlanta rabbi, Jacob M. Rothschild, she is about to publish the story of her long and memorable life.
It is sometimes said of accomplished people who have lived a certain number of years that they have, in fact, lived many lives. This nowhere fits better than in the example of Janice Rothschild Blumberg. Her many lives are distinct, memorable, and in each case, worthy of their very own individual memoir.
About the Book
Set for publication in January, it is available for pre-order on What's Next? on BarnesandNoble.com, What's Next? at Amazon.com, or through your local bookseller, including WAT Member Kim McNamara's Read It Again Bookstore.
