DiaryThe Red Leather Diary: Reclaiming a Life Through the Pages of a Lost Journal by Lily Koppel

Introduction written by Lily Koppel:Lily
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. T
he book speaks to the significance and “private truths” of all of our lives.

  1. I found THE RED LEATHER DIARY to be extremely intriguing. We all are curious about other people’s lives in one way or another and this book not only brought us into the life of Florence Wolfson, but it also brought us back to an era that we can never experience. It made me realize that different generations are not that different in experiences, just in intensities. I could not put it down.

  2. I found out about your book from the Harper newsletter in my email. I can’t wait to read it. I am intrigued by being able to look into the intimate lives of other women and see the similarities and contrasts to my own life. What a treasure to be able to find a diary of that era and share it with women today. I hope I win one. If not, I will buy one. Either way, I have to read this book.

  3. I found your blog while surfing around and your post regarding I feel happy! I feel happy! looks very interesting for me
