Pre-Shabbat Jewish Literary Links
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.)
Every Friday, the My Machberet blog presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
