I am an 8th grade reading teacher in Wisconsin. I read "I Have Lived A Thousand Years" with my students each year. All my students love the book and we are wondering if anyone knows of any speaking engagements that Ms. Bitton-Jackson gives. We are hoping to save enough money to travel to meet her or hire her for a speaking engagement if she visits schools. Does anyone have any info on this?

reply to bess: have you read 'my bridges of hope' and 'hello, america'?
those tell of the years after the shoah. her latest book was published last august. it is 'saving what remains' and is a captivating read, as are all of her books. she also writes a newspaper column that is available online.

Is there any word on whether or not Livia is planning on writing any more books? It would be interesting to learn about the period between the time when she earned her high school diploma and when she moved to Israel.

I just finished reading "I Have Lived a Thousand Years". I am a 66yr old Grandma who has buried two sons. I am giving this book to my grandchildren, in hopes they never complain about not having enough in life. What a heart tugging story that everyone should read. It would be an honor to share with Livia. Next Sunday at our local libray in Tigard, Oregon, holocaust survivors will be speaking. I am going and hope to mention Livia's books. God bless this precious woman for sharing her story.

to answer bruce major:
ms. bitton-jackson lives in netanya, israel. there is an excellent address which she gave at the durham museum @ yom hashoah this year. if you go to their website and click on archived lectures, it will come up. you will also very much appreciate her other books: my bridges of hope; hello, america; and the latest one, saving what remains. i have lived a thousand years in the youth edition of her book, elli: coming of age in the holocaust.

My name is Bruce and I am a 49 year old Jewish man and I just got done reading the Book I have lived a thousand years. I was so touched as I think anyone with a heart and soul would be. I was wondering if Mrs. Livia Bitton speaks anywhere in the NYC area regularly or if she allows people to meet her. Does she live in NYC still. I live in crown heights Brooklyn and would love to meet her.
