Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.

  • From London: new audio recordings from the 2013 Jewish Book Week festival. Listen to sessions that featured Shani Boianjiu, Edith Pearlman, Francesca Segal and Jami Attenberg, Laurent Binet, and many others.
  • Also from Britain: B.J. Epstein acquaints us with Into the Light: The Medieval Hebrew Poetry of Meir of Norwich for Wales Arts Review.
  • Back in the U.S.A., The Forward brings together authors Joanna Hershon and Adelle Waldman and asks them, among other questions, “What are your thoughts about being a Jewish writer?”
  • Lots of Jewish-lit info in the August Jewish Book Carnival, hosted by Leora Wenger.
  • On the Jewesses with Attitude blog, Miriam Cantor-Stone writes a letter to the late playwright Wendy Wasserstein.
  • Shabbat shalom, everyone.

      The Jewish Book Week interview with Mario Levi was great. Istanbul Was a Fairytale is in one of my TBR piles. Only disappointment was learning that the translation is somewhat lacking.

        Haven’t made it to that one myself yet, Nina. Isn’t the whole collection an amazing resource?
