About the Author
I am Seymour Rossel. I love a good story (ask anyone) and I have been collecting, writing, editing, publishing, discussing, lecturing on, speaking about, and telling good stories throughout my career. I use stories in my teaching and (as a rabbi) in my preaching. I gifted stories to my children like a legacy of family jewels and now I am privileged to gift stories to my grandchildren. I think The Wise Folk of Chelm can be treasured and gifted, especially if the stories are shared out loud.
People I know (even some professional publishers) tell me that publishing has become increasingly difficult-with local bookstores giving way to internet warehouses, reviewers having fewer major outlets, and (so it is claimed) people reading less. I acknowledge these changes but also note some positive ones. Publishing, I think, is becoming more intimate--word of good reads spreads from friend to friend, among family members, and widens through the web. Books can depend less on exaggerated and expensive advertising and more on merit. And new opportunities exist for interaction between author and readers.
So I invite you to discuss your Chelm experience with me. You can find a formal biography of me at Wikipedia. You can reach me by email from my site www.rossel.net. And you can friend me in all the usual places. Let's share some good stories.
