Barbara Krasner fills us in on the most recent conference of the Association of Jewish Libraries.

On Lilith blog: an interview with Nora Gold about her new novel Fields of Exile (which we discussed with her, too).
I mentioned last week how disappointed I was that I wouldn’t be able to attend “Pew-ish: Artists Responding to the New Jewish Identity,” a staged reading of short plays. Luckily, though, Gordon Haber made it to the event–and covered it for The Forward.
