THE MUD ANGELS: NOTE TAKING PAPER

About

Reviews

Author Karen M. Greenwald was interviewed by a journalist for INTOSCANA-a Tuscan new source. The article was published on the anniversary of the Arno's devastating flood. At the time, Tuscany was in the midst of another epic flood. The journalist felt that, "it was important to express your [Greenwald's] message.”

The interview article was written in Italian but has an option on the INTOSCANA site for an English version.

BOOK BLURB: When the Arno River floods the city of Florence, Italy, in 1966, it leaves behind slimy, sticky, smelly mud everywhere. A young girl watches students from the US and other countries bravely trek through literal tons of sludge to save Florence’s treasures. Their destination is the Central Library. But the harsh journey there is nowhere near as challenging as saving the centuries-old, priceless, hand-painted books stored in the library’s basement.

This is the only children's book on this topic. Readers will see the power, bravery, and selflessness of global youth and their fervent protectiveness of Italian treasures.

RESEARCH: A vast amount of research is primary, including lengthy interviews with 16 Mud Angels.
