Louder Than Words ft. Kathy Kacer

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

Toronto-based author Kathy Kacer has a new book! Louder than Words, is the latest in the Heroes Quartet Series and features the love and courage of Nina Pukas, who put aside her fear to help a single Jewish family in a World War II Ukraine.

In this conversation, we talk about the what and the why of Kathy’s writing, the importance of holding the stories of the Holocaust in front of young people, and the strong female characters presented in Louder Than Words.
