Three Jewish authors launch new books

Three Jewish authors are promoting their new books in metro Atlanta this month.

Audrey Galex, a Brookhaven resident, is the author of “Turtle Rocks,” a children’s book about the power of perspective, curiosity, and hope whimsically illustrated by Colleen Finn.

“Turtle Rocks is a children’s picture book with a seemingly simple story: On the surface, it’s a tale about turtles plodding along a forest path to sun themselves on a log in a pond, and about how each reacts to what appears to be a rock in its path. Beneath the surface, it’s a story of perseverance, leadership, teamwork, and authenticity.

Galex describes herself as a mother, activist, and placemaker. She is the Community Engagement director for AIB Network (Atlanta Interfaith Broadcasters, Inc.). She will be at Virginia Highland Books, 1034 N. Highland Ave. from 2-4 p.m. on March 17.

Breakout author of “Hands of Gold: One Man’s Quest to Find the Silver Lining in Misfortune,” Roni Robbins is a former editor of The Atlanta Jewish Times. “Hands of Gold” won the 2023 International Book Awards for multicultural fiction and the 2023 Global Book Awards gold medal for biographical survival.

The book is inspired by Robbins’ grandfather, Sam, as the main character navigates life across four countries, nine decades, and five generations.

Robbins will be at Barnes and Noble, 4475 Roswell Road in Marietta from 2-4 p.m. on March 9.

Harry Stern, author of “The Insider,” is launching his book at Bookmeiser, 3822 Roswell Road in Marietta from 5-6:30 p.m. on March 10.

Stern led the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta for 16 years. He is the author of “My Brother’s Keeper,” book one in a series about Leora Bargal and Joshua Canaan’s efforts to thwart terrorism.

A fast-paced fiction thriller, “The Insider” follows Iran’s Quds Force that aim to inflict maximum casualties on Jews in New York City.
