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.
- From Etgar Keret’s Substack: a “Genesis prequel” (translated by Jessica Cohen).
- Did you know that the “It Book” of the summer of 1947 (75 years ago, if math isn’t your forte) was Laura Z. Hobson’s Gentleman’s Agreement?
- Introducing Yetzirah, “a new literary organization for Jewish poets.”
- “Am I Ukrainian? A Study in Eight Parts”: a terrific essay by Mara Sandroff, published in the Emerging Writer series from Roxane Gay/The Audacity.
- And you’ll find at least a couple of Jewishly-oriented opportunities for writers in the latest issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0.
A concluding note: We’re approaching the 50th anniversary of the Munich Massacre next week, and in commemoration Moment magazine has re-published one of the short stories from my collection Quiet Americans. You’ll find a link to the story, and some additional thoughts/backgrounds, in this brief piece.
