Come enter the world of CIRCLE SPINNING: JEWISH TURNING AND RETURNING TALES. In her third book, storyteller and author Cherie Karo Schwartz takes the reader on a pathway of spiraling interwoven stories. Drawing on the ancient jewish tradition of midrashim, she blends her renewing turnings of ancient tales, folk tales, original stories, and poetry into a seamless journey of Four Worlds and Four Elements discovery for dreamers and seekers. This book is enhanced with the superb paper-cut artistry of Lisa Rauchwerger. Her visual midrashim beautifully complement the stories in theme and intention.

Cherie is a master story teller and (re) weaver! This is a delightful collection of original stories imbued with her unique vision and wisdom. They will seem ancient, but are truly new.
