Jewish Book Carnival: January 2023/5783

book-filled logo for the AJL Jewish Book Carnival

The My Machberet blog is proud to serve as this month’s host for the Jewish Book Carnival, a monthly event where those who cover Jewish books online “can meet, read, and comment on each others’ posts.” Organized by the Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL), the Carnival travels around and is hosted on a different participant’s site on the 15th of each month.

As I prepared this Carnival, I realized that this is the 15th time that I’m hosting! Please take a look at past posts—they go back to 2010!

Herewith, the January 2023 Carnival.


Occasional Notes from a Practicing Writer

It’s been quite some time since I’ve shared a post about what’s happening in my own writing life. I won’t attempt to recap the past few months, but I will give you a quick overview of of what’s I’ve been up to as the new year 2023 gets going.
