Extensive target market: Klara’s story is targeted at adult readers interested in Jewish history, communism and fascism, and the events that led up to WWII: a huge audience.
Parallels with today will resonate with readers: The threat of fascism is rising today throughout the world, with the proliferation of authoritarian leaders and their followers. Many events in Klara’s diary echo our times to an eerie degree.
Timely message: With anti-Semitic incidents on the rise worldwide (more Jews were killed in anti-Semitic violence around the world in 2018 than during any other year in decades), Home So Far Away is a cautionary tale for our present moment.
For readers who loved . . .: Barbara Stark-Nemon’s award-winning Even in Darkness, published by SWP in 2015, which has a strong sales record.
