Managing Bubbie is an award-winning book on its way to becoming a movie! Russel Lazega, author of this captivating book, will be at Temple Beth El in Boca Raton on Sunday, February 7 at 1 p.m. for a book signing and reading. The event is open to the public.
Lea Lazega was larger than life. A strong, independent and fearless woman who survived Poland’s ghettos, the bleakness of the Holocaust and fleeing war torn Europe by not following the crowd. Fast forward fifty years and her now-American family must struggle with how to manage a woman who time and again eluded catastrophe by refusing to be told what to do.
“I vant you should write this down. I vant people should know my story.”
“Everyone who knew her said her life and her experiences had to become a book and a movie,” said her grandson, North Miami Beach attorney, Russel Lazega, the proud author of Managing Bubbie.
According to Lazega, Managing Bubbie has universal appeal. “I am getting emails from as far away as China saying things like: ‘Wow, my grandmother was exactly like that’ or ‘That reminds me of my mother’s story,” Lazega said. “She plotted, she schemed, she survived – all to make her way to America and she survived some of history’s greatest horrors by not listening to the advice of others.”
The book has received many awards and honors including:
- Gold Medal – 2015 Reader’s Favorite Book Contest
- Finalist 2015 Independent Author Network Book of the Year
- Honorable Mention 2015 Writer’s Digest Self Published Book Awards
- Honorable Mention 2015 Hollywood Book Festival
