Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 30, 2009
Marsha Casper Cook the five time published author of a wide array of literary works is promoting a re-release of a biographical story, Sala: More Than A Survivor. The story of a woman, Sala Lewis, who at age ten was left to fend for herself and wander the streets of Poland and watch in horror as her family was taken away by the Nazi's. She had lost everything and everyone she knew. She was powerless and had to over come obstacles that at age ten seemed unconscionable. She eventually was fortunate enough to find her sister Dora, and she found a renewed sense of vigor that would stay with each of them for the rest of there lives. Sala is truly a survivor, and her story is riveting and proves that adversity can breed a life filled with love.
•Marsha Casper Cook had the pleasure of interviewing Sala Lewis, and took her vivid recollection of the events that occurred in that fateful period, and turned it into a wonderful story of survival and how we should never forget and never let anyone stand in our way.
•Marsha Casper Cook is a unique author, in that she believes that her books should not only educate and entertain, but they should serve as a vehicle for charity. She routinely partners with deserving charities that have a direct correlation to the subject matter. In this case, she has decided to donate all net proceeds of this novel to the Illinois Holocaust Museum. Likely the last major Holocaust museum to be built in collaboration with survivors, the new Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center will be the largest institution in the Midwest dedicated to preserving the memories of those lost in the Holocaust and teaching current generations to fight hatred, indifference and genocide in today's world.
•Sala Lewis and Marsha Casper Cook are also going to be speaking at several events in the immediate future.
•May 5th, 2009 Mrs. Lewis is a personally invited guest of Mayor Richard M. Daley of Chicago for his Holocaust Remembrance Day at the Illinois Holocaust Museum.
•May 28th, 2009 11:00 a.m. Mrs. Lewis is speaking at The Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie, IL about her personal experiences during the Holocaust.
In addition to this stellar book about Sala Lewis and her trials and tribulations of life before and after the Holocaust, Mrs. Casper-Cook has several other published works, all of which benefit a particular charity.
Snack Attack and The Magical Leaping Lizard Potion:
portion of net proceeds benefit The Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
