Jack Zipes of Minneapolis may not be in the classroom anymore, but once a teacher always a teacher. Now retired from his position as a Professor of German and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota, these days he is on a mission to breathe new life into old fairy tales that deliver important messages. The fairy tales he is re-releasing this September are both about fascism and teach lessons that are very timely right now.
Keedle the Great, originally written by Deirdre and William Conselman, Jr., and illustrated by Fred L. Fox in 1940, is the story of a scrawny little kid who is cruel to animals. As the story progresses and Keedle becomes a bigger bully, he gets smaller and smaller. It shows that bullies don’t last forever. Yussuf the Ostrich, originally written and illustrated by Emery Kelen, one of the great political caricaturists of the twentieth century and released in 1943, is the story of a young idealistic ostrich who has to overcome racism, war and separation from his mother.
The books were officially launched at a virtual event hosted by Magers and Quinn of Minneapolis on Sept. 27, 2020. A preview story appeared in the Sept. 18 Star Tribune.The books were also featured in the Pioneer Press (Sept. 20), which named them the literary pick of the week, and Jack was also interviewed on WJON-AM Radio St. Cloud on Sept. 24.

The Kirkus Review has just come in for Bruce J. Berger's The Flight of the Veil, set for release on Oct. 8, 2020, and the book is being called, "A well-crafted tale about trauma and miracles." Here is a link to the full review. The Flight of the Veil is the story of Holocause survivor Nicky Covo. In 1990, Nicky – a Brooklyn psychiatrist – receives a letter from Abbess Fevronia, the head of a women’s monastery in Greece. Although Nicky believes the rest of his family died at Auschwitz, he learns that Theodora, a mysteriously silent nun who’s lived at the monastery since 1944, may be his baby sister, Kal. With his old friend and new love, Helen, Nicky returns to Greece – to harrowing memories of his fighting with the partisans and to a reunion with his beloved sister. The Flight of the Veil explores the intersections of guilt and memory, faith and tragedy, fate and miracle.

The 2020 Minnesota State Fair may be canceled, but residents of a senior living community in Excelsior won’t have to go without their favorite fair games and foods this year.
Staff at The Waters of Excelsior in the Twin Cities hosted a mini State Fair for residents on Wed., Aug. 26, 2020. The community’s parking lot was transformed into a mini version of the Great Minnesota Get Together. There was food, games, a photo op with a “cow” cardboard cutout and hay bales, and even a few classic cars from the 1950s on display. Plus, lots of excitement generated by the overwhelming coverage from the local media. KARE, WCCO and KSTP television covered the event. So did the Star Tribune newspaper.
“The State Fair is one of the most popular excursions residents go on every year, and many people were disappointed when they learned it had been canceled. I am so glad we can keep the excitement alive in some fashion by hosting a mini fair on site,” said Lori Nugent, Active Life Manager at The Waters of Excelsior.
