Goodman South Madison Library

Freedom Summer in 1964 was a turning point in the civil rights movement, when more than 900 northern volunteers, 120 activists, and thousands of local Mississippi residents faced Ku Klux Klan firebombs and police shotguns to secure voting rights and challenge segregation. Michael Edmonds, deputy director of the Library-Archives division at the Wisconsin Historical Society, designed the Society's online archive of 35,000 documents about Freedom Summer and edited a book of eyewitness accounts of Freedom Summer.

As the death toll mounts in the Gaza Strip, the world is again focused on a conflict reinforced by the border between Israel and Palestine. That border and its toll on Jerusalem, the city where her mother was born, haunted Leora Skolkin-Smith throughout her childhood. Decades later, she drew on memories of her mother and their visits to her homeland to create a richly atmospheric, deeply personal novel. “The first scenes I came up with were just about sitting around a dinner table in Jerusalem as a child,” Leora recalls.
