  • Speaking of contests, YM Books (an imprint of YALDAH Media, Inc.) is running one to promote Evelyn Krieger’s One Is Not a Lonely Number. Entry deadline is January 11.
  • London’s Jewish Book Week begins late next month, and the program is now online. (Bonus for those of us who can’t get there: “Many of our sessions will be available as podcasts after the festival.”)
