It’s time for the weekly batch of Internet finds of Jewish literary interest.
Let’s begin here: Did you know that Cynthia Ozick has written a novel set in a Jewish day school?
On the Jewish flavor of the works of Maurice Sendak.
Summer internship opportunity (albeit unpaid) with the Jewish Book Council.
And a job announcement from the Forward, which is looking for an Arts & Culture Editor.
Finally, a personal note: This week marked the 30th anniversary of my becoming a Bat Mitzvah. The secular and Hebrew calendars seem to be aligned, because this week’s Torah portion, Parashat Emor, was mine. Last year, New Vilna Review published “Emor,” a poem inspired by my attendance at a more recent May Bat Mitzvah ceremony.
Mid-month brings the Jewish Book Carnival.
This month’s carnival is hosted over on Ann D. Koffsky’s blog and features contributions from several wonderful bloggers, including a number of posts on books for children.
Please go take a look, and enjoy.
P.S. For some reason, when I try commenting on other people’s WP sites/blogs (as for the Carnival), the comments don’t “take.” Anyone have any idea why that might be happening?
