Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish news, primarily of the literary variety, from around the Web.

  • A Q&A with Ann Kirschner about her new biography of Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp. (This also happens to be my first post for The Forward’s Sisterhood blog!)
  • Kirschner’s book is also featured as part of the “books” segment of The Jewish Week‘s spring arts preview.
  • Washington Jewish Week is looking for a Senior Reporter.
  • A.B. Yehoshua’s English publisher promoted Yehoshua’s new novel within the Goodreads “Jewish Book Carnival” group. I stayed quiet. At first.
  • More literary tsuris? The next PEN World Voices festival (focusing on the theme of “bravery”) will feature a panel on Palestinian literature–moderated by BDS activist Judith Butler. Somehow, this news fills me with foreboding.
  • Shabbat shalom!
