Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Great Start to a New Class

Last week brought the first session (of three that I’ll be offering) in a seminar series titled “Telling Their Grandparents’ Stories: Writings by Grandchildren of Holocaust Refugees and Survivors.” Since the seminar is limited to members of the New York Society Library, I haven’t “advertised” it much.

The group that convened last week was really wonderful, and the conversation, which focused on fiction by Eduardo Halfon and Rachel Hall, went very well. (At least, that’s my opinion!)

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

This week, just a few quick things:

  • It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Jessica Piazza’s Poetry Has Value project. How much of a fan am I? Well, I’m going to be blogging for the project for the rest of the year. Take a look at my introductory post–and please follow along!
  • Remember that Quiet Americans anniversary giveaway that I mentioned last week? The giveaway went live on Sunday. Here’s the link, if you want to enter.
  • And a dispatch from the day job: I enjoyed writing this post for the Fig Tree Books blog, about “rabbinic fiction.”
  • Hope that everyone’s week is going well!
