Looking forward to reading through the new issue of Lilith magazine.
The Fig Tree Books blog takes note of the 20th anniversary of the passing of Henry Roth, author of the classic Call It Sleep.
You’ve never read a Sukkot poem like Chaya Lester’s “In Honor of the Murdered…and Their Orphans,” a response to recent events in Israel, on Hevria.
