Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer
Three quick updates.
1. I’m busy polishing and proofreading the February issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0, which will go out to subscribers on Sunday.
2. I’m also (still!) busy preparing for the class that I’ll start teaching next week!
3. As I’ve mentioned before, the class is focused on “Holocaust Literature.” Today, the anniversary of liberation of Auschwitz, is International Holocaust Remembrance Day (Jewish communities worldwide also observe another commemoration, Yom HaShoah, every spring).
I expect to share with this semester’s students clips from “Children of the Holocaust: Writers of the Next Generation.” (I happened to be in the audience when the event took place here in New York several years ago.)
Especially if you’re a fan of writers such as Ruth Franklin, Daniel Mendelsohn, and Sarah Wildman—all of whom participated that evening—you may want to check it out, too. Especially today.
