The San Diego Union-Tribune Festival of Books is a huge book event that will be presented by the University of San Diego. Authors, avid readers, booksellers, literary influences, and book industry professionals are among the people expected to attend the festival, which is now on its 7th edition. There will be workshops, author panel sessions, book displays, and other exciting activities for attendees.

“Insanity and Grace” talks about the life experiences of the author, a child of Holocaust survivors. For the last thirty years, Dr. Ilana Oren has worked with patients who shared secrets with her. These patients were willing to heal the emotion of shame engulfing their lives.

Inspired by her work with her patients, Dr. Ilana Oren began to look at the skeletons in her own closet in “Insanity and Grace.” She shares insights from her life as she talks about her heritage being the last remnant of the Polish Jews who immigrated to Israel in 1957. She also addresses her grief of losing her friends in the Six-Day War and extols her service in the Israeli Defense Force.

The author’s life story forms a fabric of a gripping new chapter in the history of the Jewish people.
