Mr. A. A. Medved, former Cherry Lawn Director,  announces publication of a new book

J of K, Judah of Kerioth    By Alphonse Anthony Medved

About the Book

J of K (Judah of Kerioth) is a conscientiously researched, literary novel driven by one man's almost lifelong obsession to shed light on, and obtain justice for, another man's conviction and condemnation in one of the worst miscarriages of human rights justice in the record annals of humankind.

About the Author

Alphonse Anthony Medved, born in Austria (today Slovenia ) is proud to agree with the statement that "Slovenes, like their landscapes, are incorrigibly individualistic." After coming to understand a story that haunted him, he wrote "J of K, Judah of Kerioth."  You can order the book through Ingram's Books in Print Database, directly from the publisher at, or through the book order hotline at (888)280-7715.  Price: $15.50 for quality trade paperback;  $14 for hardcover
