Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

For your Shabbat reading, please find below some links I’ve liked this week (and some I hope to explore further over the weekend):

  • In case you missed its debut on Tuesday, you can still enjoy the November Jewish Book Carnival.
  • Looking for book (and educational toy) ideas for Chanukah? Look no further than these suggestions from my very own sister.
  • Leslie Epstein, on Aharon Appelfeld.
  • Have I mentioned before that sometimes I dream of a career writing biographies for young people? That’s just one of the reasons why I’m so interested in this Whole Megillah interview featuring both the author and the editor behind a new Leonard Bernstein biography for young readers.
  • A hearty Mazel Tov to the Jewish Book Council on its sparkling new website (replete with renamed blog)!
  • Shabbat shalom!
