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 list of the latest children’s books to be translated from Hebrew to English. (via Makom)
  • I’m currently reading Michael Lavigne’s new novel, The Wanting, which The Forward reviewed this week.
  • Ellen Ullman’s sad and unsettling story, “Fathers,” is the latest installment in Tablet’s fiction series.
  • Ann D. Koffsky host the March Jewish Book Carnival.
  • My application to the Asylum International Jewish Artists Retreat was solicited last fall, but it wasn’t accepted. (Disappointed, I followed up with an email inquiry that was never answered.) But at least I’m able to get a glimpse into the event, which took place earlier this month, via Susan Reimer-Torn’s report for The Jewish Week.
  • Shabbat shalom!
