Snow rested thickly on each tree branch.

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

I’m just back from my first visit to the Association for Jewish Studies annual conference, held this year in Boston.

Which means that I have a lot to catch up on, and a lot to follow up on, and won’t write a lengthy post today.

But, pictured above, you’ll find one book (left) that I purchased; one book (right) that I won (as part of a team that tied for second place at Monday night’s trivia competition!); and in the middle, a teaser for a book that I’m looking forward to catching when it’s published in 2019.

More soon!
