Furthering her writing career, Silber recently completed two books published through Pegasus Books. First, After Anatevka, which follows the story of the character Hodel in Fiddler on the Roof after the events of the musical; the other, White Hot Grief Parade, is a memoir that discusses the loss of her father and will be released next year.
