2019 FAPA President’s Book Awards WinnerHumor (Silver)

Phylis: Tales of a Jewish Child during the Great Depression is a collection of charming short stories written by 91-year-old Phylis Goldberg, told entirely from the perspective of her precocious childhood self. Growing up on Long Island, the cherished youngest daughter of two Orthodox Jewish immigrants, Phylis’s clear-eyed recollections of her family life are fun and funny, unsparingly truthful, and sparkle like fresh paint. Phylis: Tales of a Jewish Child during the Great Depression will leave readers with the sense of having been there, right alongside Phylis, sharing her childhood adventures at a pivotal time in America’s history.
