Growing up Below Sea Level: A Kibbutz Childhood
This beautifully written memoir is composed of linked stories about growing up on a kibbutz in Israel in the 1950s and 60s, when children spent most of their time, from birth on, in a Children’s House. The stories focus on the world of children, but also offer a window into the lives of the adult kibbutz members, including Holocaust survivors.

Jo Ivester Once a Girl, Always a Boy: A Family Memoir of a Transgender Journey
This family memoir shares Jeremy Ivester’s journey from childhood through coming out as transgender and eventually emerging as an advocate for the transgender community. This is not only Jeremy’s story but also that of his family, told from multiple perspectives—those of the siblings who struggled to understand the brother they once saw as a sister, and of the parents who ultimately joined him in the battle against discrimination.
