AJL Convention, Boston, June 18-21, 2006: Girls’ Lit
…”With all respect to the first 2 speakers (and they were great), the third really stole the show. Fifteen year old Leah Larson is the founder, editor, and publisher of Yaldah Magazine. Several years ago she was looking for good magazines to read. She enjoyed reading American Girl and decided that there should be a similar magazine done specifically for Jewish Girls. With the support of her family, she designed the magazine, wrote articles, recruited other girls to write and edit, and learned the ins and outs of publishing a journal.
I really wished that my daughter could have heard Leah also. Its wonderful to see how much an inspired kid can accomplish! You go yaldah! (hhhhmmmm doesn’t quite have the same ring – but you get the point)”…
thats realy kewlwe luv yaldah!
