Linda Kass

Goodreads Author

Columbus, Ohio, The United States


Member Since
November 2015


Linda Kass wrote for regional and national publications, including Columbus Monthly, TIME and The Detroit Free Press, early in her career as a journalist. TASA’S SONG, her debut novel, was inspired by her mother’s life in eastern Poland during the Second World War. Her second novel, A RITCHIE BOY, to be released on September 1, 2020, is the compelling tale of one young immigrant's triumph over adversity as he journeys from Europe to America, and from boyhood to manhood. It, too, is inspired by true events.

Linda is a strong advocate of education, literacy, and the arts. She is the founder and owner of Gramercy Books, an independent bookstore serving the greater Columbus, OH area.
