Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish literary news from around the Web.
Coming soon (as in: next Tuesday, November 20): the next meeting of the Jewish Book Council’s Twitter Book Club, featuring Shani Boianjiu and The People of Forever Are Not Afraid.
You’ve likely heard the news: Philip Roth is done with writing! Eitan Kensky reads the announcement more closely.
From Judy Bolton-Fasman: Q&A with Michael Lowenthal, whose latest novel, The Paternity Test, “gracefully merges gay marriage, Jewish identity, sexuality, the Holocaust, Jewish continuity and sexual fidelity in one story.”
Moment magazine has announced the topic for this year’s “Elephant in the Room” essay contest. Click here for details.
Glad to see that The Jewish Week’s “Well Versed” arts blog seems to be back.
Wishing everyone–especially in Israel–a Shabbat Shalom.
