April 14, 2011 - Goal: Looking for Literary Agents to help me publish my mother's book "Landjahr Seidorf"
Twenty years ago, underneath the end table in my parents’ bedroom, I found a very strange hand-made book. The stained green hard cover has a red cloth emblem on the lower right hand corner. It is bounded with a simple green string. I brought the book to my 61 year old mother who was in the hospital. She was dying from bone cancer.
I said "Mom. What's this?" as I handed her the book. She said
"Don't show that to anybody! You'll get killed if anybody reads this book."
Today, I start the journey of making a dream come true - to publish my mother's book and eventually to see it on the 'silver screen.' The book has been transcribed from it's original version and I am typing it into a manuscript form while researching the places she wrote about.
