Toward the end of each week, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books and writing.
- Since I didn’t post links last week, I’m a little late sharing the announcement of the Association of Jewish Libraries Jewish Fiction Award’s latest winner and honor title.
- And a tad late, too, mentioning that the AJL’s monthly Jewish Book Carnival has also been posted for March, hosted for the month by Deborah Kalb.
- So much of what was shared in last Sunday’s kidlit-focused Storytime Solidarity/Association of Jewish Libraries “How to Be an Ally to Jewish Patrons & Students (Even in a Non-Jewish Neighborhood)” impressed me as relevant beyond kidlit—and, for that matter, beyond library work. If you spend some time with the session video and handout, I suspect you’ll agree that the session provided a superb model for undertaking similar work elsewhere.
- Call for submissions from Aviva Blakeman: “DAYS OF AWE is intended to be an anthology of fiction showcasing tales of Jewish resistance and triumph in the face of antisemitism. And that’s any form of antisemitism–its not only Nazis and Inquisitors.” Deadline: July 31.
- “Hadassah Magazine, an award-winning national publication focused on Jewish women, is looking for a Digital Editor.”
(And no, I did not intend to publish this post on Wednesday night–blame tired fingers for failing to manage the scheduling widget properly!)
