This is a fascinating look at 1945, its events, bigotry and lack thereof, and how all this affected the lives of Bess Myerson and her family. Myerson, the first and only Jewish Miss America, tells of her nervousness entering the pageant and what happened after she was selected, including her involvement with organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League, which worked to fight prejudice throughout society. Grupper reads the narrative in wonderfully expressive tones. Myerson provides the personal insight and reflection, connecting with the listener and describing her emotions and reactions to events of fifty plus years ago.
