Pre-Shabbat Jewish Literary Links

table of contents for latest edition of PAPER BRIGADE
Every Friday, the My Machberet blog presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.

  • The Jewish Book Council has outdone itself with this year’s edition of Paper Brigade (table of contents pictured above).
  • I learned a lot from this “Pull Quotes” podcast episode about Jewish media in Canada (thanks to Tema Smith for the tip).
  • And if you’re in search of additional weekend listening, you may enjoy Alicia Jo Rabins’s recent appearance on David Naimon’s “Between the Covers” literary podcast as much as I did.
  • I’ve seen a number of Jewishly-focused calls for writing lately on social media, and I’m not certain that I’ve shared them all. So, to ensure that you catch them: here’s one from Alma, one from JTA, and one from the JWA. All of these, so far as I know, are paying opportunities.
  • The official release date for the first English translation (by Tina Lunson) of Jacob Dinezon’s bestselling Yiddish novel The Dark Young Man is just a few days away. (Psst: If you’re purchasing via Amazon or Kindle, you can actually already order your copy. Just scroll down this page.)
  • Shabbat shalom!
