Joseph Sherman. The author of four collections of poetry, Joseph Sherman has been the editor of ARTSatlantic, Charlottetown, since 1979. A version of "A Jewish Child's Christmas in Cape Breton" was part of a longer memoir, written in 1970, when Sherman was a graduate student at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton. In slightly different form, it was broadcast locally and regionally on CBC Radio at Christmas, 1994. It appears here by permission of the author.
