Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
In “Love Me, Love My Book,” The Jewish Week‘s Editor/Publisher, Gary Rosenblatt, reports on his experience as participant and observer in the latest Jewish Book Council “Meet the Author” event.
A hearty mazal tov to the winners of the latest Anna Davidson Rosenberg Poetry Awards (including my former poetry teacher, Matthew Lippman). Bonus: We can read the winning poems online.
A contemporary opera I don’t think I’ll be going to see.
In time for Father’s Day: Tablet and Marjorie Ingall present “The 13 Worst Jewish Fathers in Literature.”
And over on The Whole Megillah, you’ll find an interview with Michelle Caplan, Editor-in-Chief of Fig Tree Books. (You’ve seen FTB mentioned here on My Machberet before, but as a reminder, it’s “a new literary publishing house founded by Fredric Price, a successful entrepreneur in the orphan drug industry who wants to publish high quality fiction about the American Jewish experience (AJE).”)
