Beginning Friday, February 9, The Whole Megillah introduces a new pre-Shabbos feature: On My Night Stand.
This weekend I’m reading Albert Hepner’s memoir, Avrumele. I met Albert in the adjunct office of Mercer County Community College where I teach first-year composition and whatever history classes they assign me to teach. He overheard a student and me discussing Elie Wiesel’s Night and introduced himself as a hidden child in Belgium. He’s agreed to come into my composition classroom since we’re writing about Life & Death and we’re reading Wiesel. To prepare, I’m reading his book.
What’s on your night stand this week?
