folks do not even know their
neighbor, and most people
are so caught up in their
own survival they haven't
time to be concerned about
others, William Gellin is a
refreshing anomaly.
Some months ago I had
the pleasure of reviewing
his latest book, "Hidden
from View and Other
Stories." Having liked the
favorable review, Mr. Gel-
lin was prompted to write in
a letter to Mr. Philip
Slomovitz, 'editor and pub-
lisher of The Jewish News,
"I would consider it a
privilege to contribute a
number of books ("Hidden

from View") through you
and Mrs. Stern to various
charitable organizations in
your area . . . I have made
such contributions in the
New York area and (it) will
help give significance to my
83rd birthday of July 20,
close enough to the July 29
review."

Not wishing to miss an
opportunity to distribute
this fine book, Mr.
Slomovitz and I came up
with a plan, but we
needed help. Mae Weine,
librarian at Beth Ab-
raham Hillel Moses, put
me in touch with Sarah
Bell, librarian at Mid-
rasha College of Jewish
Studies, who kindly ag-
reed to receive the car-
ton of 32 books and
make them available to
other Jewish libraries in
Metropolitan Detroit at
the next meeting of the
Jewish Library Associa-
tion of Metropolitan De-
troit.

requires it, Mr. Gellin has
agreed to send more
books.

This has been a most
exhilarating and gratifying
project for me. Not only did I
learn of the existence of the
Jewish Library Association
of Metropolitan Detroit and
get to meet a number of its
members, I also had the ple-
asure of collaborating on a
most worthwhile endeavor
with Mr. Slomovitz who was
most supportive every step
of the way.
In addition, it was
gratifying to receive such
unstinting cooperation from
Sarah Bell, without whom
the project could not have
succeeded.
But my biggest joy has
been corresponding with
Mr. Gellin, our generous
author. Mr. Gellin's gesture
of kindness to our commun-
ity belies the title of his
book. While the short
stories within its covers
deal with subject matter
"hidden from view," his wil-
lingness to share his
creativity reflects an
exemplary thoughtfulness
which is not "hidden" but
very visible indeed.
It is good to know that by
distributing "Hidden from
View and Other Stories"
countless lives will be
touched and enriched by
Mr. Gellin's tender stories.

I was warmly received
and given time on the
agenda to make my presen-
tation. There was unanim-
ous enthusiasm for the pro-
ject, and I am happy to re-
port that the distribution of
the book is well under way.
The librarians each agreed
to take a copy to their own
library and many took addi-
tional copies for their col-
leagues who were not pre-
sent that evening.
As of this writing, com-
plimentary copies of "Hid-
den from View and Other
Stories" have been distri-
buted to libraries at Wayne
State University, Univer-
sity of Michigan, Michigan
State University as well as
Shaarey Zedek, Beth
Achim, Beth Abraham
