Join us in the Readings Gallery for the launch of Hanukkah in Little Havana by local school librarian, Julie Anna Blank!


Take a family road trip to Florida! At Nonno and Nonna’s house, sisters pick oranges, dance the salsa, and play at the beach. Best of all, they celebrate Hanukkah! The girls help Nonna make buñuelos and light ocho kandelikas para todos! Enjoy eight days of love and light!

After a childhood of moving every few years, Julie Anna Blank has enjoyed staying put in her Pacific Northwest home of 30 years, where she is a school librarian. She and her husband hit the road for van life adventures in their Sprinter, most often to visit their two grown sons. Having been a storyteller all her life, Julie is thrilled to see her words in print. Hanukkah in Little Havana is her first published children's book.
