Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

  • I love this piece by Erica Lyons. May it be a call to action for programs and those who run them–including programs for Jewish journalism–to recognize the potential contributions of those of us Jews who–horrors!–have passed our fortieth birthdays.
  • How did one collection of Jewish-focused fiction get its title? Read all about it.
  • What I’m reading right now: an advance copy of The Little Bride, by Anna Solomon.
  • Ken Schoen, proprietor of Schoen Books, chronicles a return to his family’s homeland.
  • Thirty-five years after Entebbe, Yonatan Netanyahu is remembered as a Harvard student. Which makes this Harvard alum especially moved, proud, and astonished that she wasn’t aware of this particular history.
  • Shabbat shalom!
