Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
Marjorie Ingall considers the plethora of poultry in new Jewish children’s books.
Over on The Whole Megillah, there’s an exciting announcement about the first “Whole Megillah Conference on Jewish Story,” scheduled for May 2014 and covering children’s writing, memoir, poetry, and fiction.
If you’ve got a blog post to contribute to the next Jewish Book Carnival, you have until Monday (November 11) to send it in to this month’s host. Details here.
I plan to take some time this weekend to peruse the latest issue of Blue Lyra Review, a journal whose self-described aim “is to bring together the voices of writers and artists from a diverse array of backgrounds, paying special homage to Jewish writers and other communities that are historically underrepresented in literary magazines.”
A reminder: This weekend marks the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht. (Some of my own family history from that episode turns up in one of the stories in my collection Quiet Americans.)
