Dina Elenbogen, author of Drawn From Water: An American Poet, An Ethiopian Family, An Israeli Story (BkMk Press, University of Missouri, Kansas City, 2015), discusses her 30-year relationship with the Ethiopian community in Israel with a focus on two children she befriended and watched grow up during her return trips. She uses her poetic voice to examine immigration and its successes, failures, adaptations and resistance. According to Kirkus Reviews, Drawn from Water is a "soul-searching memoir of the author's visits to Israel and how she discovered an Ethiopian Jewish community in the process."
