Pre-Shabbat Jewish Literary Links
Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
Steve Stern, on being “in search of the lost Jews of Memphis, Tennessee.” (h/t @AngloJewishLit) See also Alan Cheuse’s review of Stern’s newest novel.
Ongoing (until July 21): a Goodreads giveaway for Linda K. Wertheimer’s forthcoming book Faith Ed: Teaching About Religion in an Age of Intolerance.
Catch up with Fig Tree Books–now publishing fiction and memoir on American Jewish Experience–in the latest newsletter, which went out to subscribers yesterday.
Very much worth viewing: this week’s Jewish Women’s Archive book club session with Tova Mirvis.
And my weekend tbr list: new fiction by Sam Apple, courtesy of Tablet (apparently, it involves Philip Roth).
