  • Tablet summarizes all the latest Jewish book award news (and then some).
  • Author Rachel Kadish writes about Hala Salah Eldin Hussein, an editor/translator in Cairo, “and the connection we’ve forged through working together.”
  • Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
  • Pleased and grateful to receive two gifts–both inscribed–in the mail this week: William C. Donahue’s Holocaust as Fiction: Bernhard Schlink’s Nazi Novels and Their Films, and Anthony Levin’s House of the Collective Unconscious, a new poetry collection.
  • If you haven’t yet seen Andrew Lustig’s remarkable video piece on “What It Means to Be a Jew,” you must.
  • Shabbat shalom.
