  • They’re here! The latest “Holiday Highlights” selections from the Association of Jewish Libraries, for “the best Jewish holiday children’s books of Fall 2023,” have been announced. They feature new books about Shabbat, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Hanukkah (plus one “year-round” title).
  • In which Hey Alma‘s Molly Tolsky announces the winner of the outlet’s first-ever fiction contest.
  • This week has brought us the latest Jewish Book Carnival. Check out the latest mix of reviews, interviews, and other tidbits, hosted for August by Gila Green.
  • Just arrived: my print copy of the latest issue of Lilith. (You can peruse the contents online, too.)
  • And I’ll conclude with a recommendation: If you haven’t already subscribed to “On Being and Timelessness,” author and translator Aviya Kushner’s new Substack publication, yesterday’s post about poets Paul Celan and Nelly Sachs will surely lure you in. In more general terms, Kushner describes “On Being and Timelessness” as a home for writing about “books I am thinking about and questions I am considering, and for conversations I wish I could have with other readers and writers—dead or alive—at the largest dining-room table ever.” Pull up a chair!

Shabbat shalom.
