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.
- The latest Jewish Book Carnival has posted, hosted for May by Leora Wenger.
- Mazal tov to Menachem Kaiser, whose Plunder: A Memoir of Family Property and Nazi Treasure has won the latest Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature.
- Reminder: It’s still #JewishAmericanHeritageMonth! Check my ever-evolving thread of (mostly) literary tweets which span kidlit, lit for grown-ups, and even some extra-literary items. Please consider amplifying especially those items originally posted by “mainstream” publishers/organizations so they know that their recognition is appreciated).
- Having recently read (but not written much about) Mikołaj Grynberg’s I’d Like to Say I’m Sorry, but There’s No One to Say Sorry to (trans. Sean Casper Bye), I’m grateful to be able to point you to Howard Freedman’s review.
- David Baddiel’s book Jews Don’t Count will become a documentary.
