About the Author
Barbara Bookman was a first-generation American born in Brooklyn, New York in 1920. She died in 1996 at the age of 75 in Walnut Creek, California. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, friend, student, leader, school-builder, public servant, and role-model for women long before the adjective liberation was applied to them. She was well into her 60s when she began writing seriously. She wrote from the heart, as she did all things. Her memoir, Through The Golden Doors, was written during her last decade. It tells the story of a Jewish-American family, from the pogroms of Brest-Litovsk at the dawn of the 20th century to Brooklyn and beyond, through two world wars and the Great Depression.
