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.
- “There is a wall dedicated to Jewish literature, from Cynthia Ozick to Clarice Lispector to the Israeli Nobelist S.Y. Agnon, and images of Jews in all their variety: Persian, Turkish, Brazilian and Canadian, to name a few.” From Andrew Silow-Carroll’s report on his recent visit to Israel’s ANU-Museum of the Jewish People.
- Mazal tov to the winner, runner-up, and finalists in Harbor Review‘s first Jewish Women’s Poetry Prize. I cannot wait to read the published work!
- Another list to peruse, praise, and/or argue about: “120 Jewish Books for Every Age.”
- For the last time for 2022: a reminder to scroll through my threaded #JewishAmericanHeritageMonth tweets.
- Familiar with the investigation about who denounced Anne Frank and her family that drew so much attention a few months ago (the one that 60 Minutes, among others, spotlighted)? As Ruth Franklin writes, “There are so many problems with this investigation that I didn’t have room for them all in a 4,000-plus-word review” of The Betrayal of Anne Frank.
