I'll be reading from Miming in French and showing photos from Aix-en-Provence at the Lincoln Library on August 11th at 7 pm. A fun night out for readers of all ages.
Article in the Addison County Independent on Miming in French:
Review in Readers' Favorite:
Miming in French by Sheila McGrory-Klyza is the heartwarming story of a friendship that transcends all boundaries of culture, language and religion....The book has many dimensions that make it a compelling story, both light-hearted yet profound. The two girls and their bonding, despite their different religions and cultures, project the story in a novel way. The story is not only about adjusting to a new life, language or culture, but also about acceptance and tolerance of other cultures and religions and how the girls tackle the issues they face, rising above their problems. Apart from introducing readers to French culture, the book also weaves in the emotions of the girls, their loneliness and bonding.
It is a well written book where all the characters complement the story and add charm to its many layers. The plot is informative as well as educational and it emphasizes humanity over culture, religion and language. The author's perspective on the three different cultures - French, American and Muslim - weaving them together with expertise makes this book a definite winner.
