Academic Perspectives on Israel and Jewish History

 

Author Linda Frank’s lifelong interest in 20th century world and Jewish history gives her first novel, After the Auction, a well-researched foundation augmenting the fictional plot following a woman hunting for a family treasure stolen by the Nazis.

A graduate of the University of Michigan, Linda earned a master's degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism. She has published business and travel articles in publications including The Asian Wall Street Journal and The Forward and has produced and hosted a cable TV show. 

Linda has combined community involvement with a business career in financial services and marketing. She proudly upholds her family’s legacy of support for Israel and Jewish social and educational organizations, including Jewish National Fund awards to both her mother and father-in-law in their hometown of Milwaukee. Linda first visited Israel with her family at the age of 14 and remembers their guide’s car getting stuck in sand at Timna, still a working mine at the time and now the flowering JNF development funded by fellow Milwaukeeans. As the third of four generations of Hadassah life members, she is a Hadassah Founder. Her own primary Jewish volunteer roles have included local and national board positions with NCJW, as well as the boards of Jewish Community Relations councils in Milwaukee, Denver, and San Francisco. As a board member of the American Jewish Committee San Francisco Regional Office, she chaired "Jews in Modern China," an exhibit that ran at the Presidio from February to May, 2010, in coordination with the Asian Art Museum’s “Shanghai” exhibit.  

Linda and her husband, Eli, live in San Francisco, and are the parents of two adult sons, one in Milwaukee and one in Beijing, China.
