The Red Leather Diary: Reclaiming a Life Through the Pages of a Lost Journal by Lily Koppel
Introduction written by Lily Koppel:
Ever since I climbed into a dumpster outside of I apartment building and rescued a 75-year-old diary, kept by a young woman in the 1930s, I strongly believed that this story was an important one to tell. THE RED LEATHER DIARY: Reclaiming a Life Through the Pages of a Lost Journal (HarperCollins), is about my discovery of Florence Wolfson’s diary, the amazing life that is portrayed in its pages and the return of the diary to its owner at 90. The book speaks to the significance and “private truths” of all of our lives.
