New Friday Feature | On My Night Stand

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?

    Hello Barbara, I do not know where you live, but I would like to host a Book and Author luncheon for my Brandeis University chapter in Palm Beach, Florida which raises money to support the University’s research in finding cures for Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. If you live in the area and would like to give a talk about your writing, we would treat you to lunch and you might(I can’t guarantee how many) sell some of your work.

    The date I have in mind is March 7 at noon at the Palm Beach National Golf Club on Saint Andrews Road in Lake Worth, Florida. The temperature then may be in the mid 80’s. For all I know, you may live far from here and the trip or date is not convenient, but I thought I would ask you, before I asked anyone else. Regards,

    Sandy Didner
