Pre-Shabbat Jewish Literary Links
Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
This week brought the August edition of the Jewish Book Carnival, “a monthly event where bloggers who blog about Jewish books can meet, read and comment on each others’ posts.”
On my tbr list: Lara Vapnyar’s latest novel, Still Here. (See Adam Kirsch in Tablet for an preview.)
On Hevria: “Exile and Redemption,” a beautiful poem by Rachel Kann.
Someday, I am truly going to learn Hebrew. Annette Gendler’s experience is an inspiration.
Also inspiring: a Canadian Jewish News article about a book-publishing program for young campers with special needs.
