Hana's Suitcase Anniversary Album

by Karen Levine

On the 10th anniversary of the publication of Hana's Suitcase, the beloved story now in a new book with over 60 pages of added materials.

The response since Hana's Suitcase was published in the spring of 2002 has been overwhelming. Hana's story has spread across the globe. It was on the bestseller list more than a year. It's been translated into dozens of languages, honoured with numerous awards, adapted for the stage, and transformed into several films. The United Nations uses it in over 100 outposts, Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote a foreword, and Michelle Obama was presented with a copy during an official visit to Prague. This new book includes the original story, plus:

  • Commemorative letters from Karen, Fumiko, and George
  • Reaction from readers around the world
  • Letters and art from children
  • Photographs of events and ceremonies
  • Scenes from the play adaptation
  • Posters from the staging of the play in over ten countries
  • Awards and Tributes - lists, emblems, photos, and quotable quotes from juries and the media
  • Covers from the international editions
  • Images from the documentary film
