Please join me in welcoming Barry Deutsch as a guest blogger at FamilyScholars. Long-time FS readers will recognize him as Ampersand, a frequent contributor to discussion in our comments. While “Amp” and I have often had our disagreements I’ve always appreciated his cheery tone and sharp analysis.
Barry Deutsch blogs at Alas, a Blog and his political cartoons can be seen at www.leftycartoons.com (warning, some “mature” language used to make an artistic point). I’m very happy to announce that his graphic novel, Hereville, (“a comic book about an 11-year-old troll-fighting Orthodox Jewish girl”!) is being released this November. You can pre-order it now or find it in a bookstore near you this fall.
(Oh, and check out this wonderful review of Hereville by School Library Journal blogger Elizabeth Bird.)
