A Q&A with Ann Kirschner about her new biography of Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp. (This also happens to be my first post for The Forward’s Sisterhood blog!)

Washington Jewish Week is looking for a Senior Reporter.

More literary tsuris? The next PEN World Voices festival (focusing on the theme of “bravery”) will feature a panel on Palestinian literature–moderated by BDS activist Judith Butler. Somehow, this news fills me with foreboding.
