Shira’s official Be/Hold song

In Be/Hold: A Friendship Book visual artist, poet, and musician Shira Erlichman opens with the line, “Sweetheart, sometimes when I’m feeling blue I put my ear to the wind & listen for you,” building a one-of-a-kind story of friendship from her love of compound words (i.e. toothbrush, windbreaker, behold) in a book that uplifts, encourages, and honors the people we care about most.

“Nascent wordsmiths will be left keen to explore the expressive possibilities for themselves.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Her debut picture book Be/Hold: a friendship book is a poem that delves into abstract art, word play, a love song to a sweetheart, as well as acceptance of someone other than ourself.  It’s a wonderful melange of all these things at once!  It must be read to be believed.” —Jena Benton, jenabenton.com
