Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
“After teaching in a UK haredi girls school, secular Jewish author Eve Harris writes a sympathetic 400-page novel about that world’s biggest problems.” The Times of Israel on The Marrying of Chani Kaufman.
Nice to see that Israel will be the “guest of honor” at this year’s Guadalajara International Book Fair.
From Hadassah magazine: a profile of the Jewish Book Council’s exceptional director, Carolyn Starman Hessel.
Another example of a “Jewish book” without a Jewish author: Tablet magazine on “A Horror Story Set in Hasidic Crown Heights.”
Another prize for Francesca Segal & The Innocents.
