March 2018 Jewish Book Carnival

The Whole Megillah is pleased to once again host the monthly Jewish Book Carnival!

Here are this month’s links:

  • Chava Pinchuck spoke with Yael Levy about romance novels and social commentary.
  • Over on My Machberet, Erika Dreifus routinely curates pre-Shabbat Jewish-lit links. Here’s one recent post.
  • In March, Jill at Rhapsody in Books reviewed Sadness Is a White Bird by Moriel Rothman-Zecher.  In this topical and beautiful story, a young Jewish man who came from America to Israel unexpectedly befriends two Palestinian siblings, causing him to question everything he thought he knew about his new country and about himself.
  • Batya Medad on Shiloh Musings reviews a very accessible theological work.  Disillusions: A Spiritual GPS For the Journeyer, The Real New World Order by Yemima Bakol manages to be both a very serious philosophical and theological book mostly about Judaism, but light, fun and easy reading, too. Now, that is a very amazing accomplishment.
  • Deborah Kalb interviews a wide variety of authors on her book blog. Here’s a link to a recent interview with Dina Gold, author of Stolen Legacy: Nazi Theft and the Quest for Justice at Krausenstrasse 17/18, Berlin.
  • Finally, at The Whole Megillah | The Writer’s Resource for Jewish Story, Barbara Krasner interviews authors Margie Wolfe and Pnina Bat Zvi and illustrator Isabelle Cardinal about their Second Story Press picture book, The Promise.
