The interview and book giveaway of signed copies of The Silence of Trees, will air this weekend, Sunday, October 9, at 6pm PST on AM1320 CHMB Vancouver. The program also streams live at the CHMB website. The podcast is available at iTunes and audio archives on the Playlist page.

  1. I just read Silence of the Trees, and wanted you to know that this is the best book I’ve read in a long time, and I’ll be Sharing it with everyone I can. I was so touched by Nadya and her story. Great work! Thank you.

  2. Thank you Valya, for the lovely compliment and I’m so glad you enjoyed the interview. It was a total pleasure for me as well!

    The interview itself is archived at the Nash Holos website on the Interviews page. I’ll be in touch with you shortly with a list of the winners.

    Sorry for the delay in getting that to you. I’m reorganizing and updating in both cyberspace and the physical world, which is creating a bit of havoc for me. But things will get back to normal soon. 🙂

    All the best, and thanks for writing that wonderful book!
