Mary Glickman is a true gem!!! An exceptional writer, her presentation was engaging and informative peppered with a great sense of humor. Our audience loved her southern charm and endearing attitude. After her presentation, she had a wonderful lunch with community members who could not stop raving about what a wonderful and fascinating woman she was. Any community would be lucky to hear Mary’s stories.

Mary was a warm and engaging speaker. Her insights into her creative process and her journey to publication were coupled with a look into her personal life journey, which was shared sincerely and candidly. Everyone felt as if they had made a new friend!

Mary is terrific! Our JCC Jewish Bookfest was honored to host Mary Glickman in February, 2014. Her latest novel, Marching to Zion, features strong characters and explores the intricate relationship between race and religion in the early 20th century American South. Not only did her entertaining presentation engage the audience, her personal story and background research brought another layer of depth to her fascinating portrayal of a complex subject.

Mary Glickman is a skillful storyteller who’s characters come to life weaving a tale of love, betrayal, longing and friendship all beautifully set in the historical south. She is a book club favorite in Dallas and when she visited our community our audience was captured by her writing and personal journey.

I had the pleasure of hearing Mary Glickman in person at a Limmud a few years ago and since that time have engaged her to work in our 13 Southern State region. She is warm and easy to work with and her life story, as well as her books, engage audiences in a wonderful way. I look forward to our continued work together bringing excellence in Jewish Programming to the southern audience.

Having Mary Glickman was a sheer joy. Her presentation was amazing, and Southern Jewish History is her forte . The research and sensitivity she illustrates are fabulous. And her books are great, also! I encourage anyone looking for a great author to headline what will turn out to be a great event should book her now!!

Our One Book/One Community book selection of One More River was a great choice for us in Chicago. Mary was a joy to work with on all aspects of our programming.
