Mid-Week Notes

Three quick things:

  1. I’m happy to announce that a short story being published by the literary magazine of Mercer County Community College, The Kelsey Review, has been nominated for a Pushcart. The story is based on the man who sat behind me in shul when I was training for my Bat Mitzvah. He was kind of nasty and then I found out in the 1930s his plastics factory blew up and he was accused of murder. I learned there’s always a back story. The name of the story? “Enough.”
  2. The title of my forthcoming novel in verse has now been finalized as 37 Days at Sea: The Doomed Voyage of the MS St. Louis, 1939, to be published by Kar-Ben in Spring 2021. I can’t wait to see the cover design!
  3. I’ve now learned some Chanukah songs in Yiddish. Check out one of them here. They make me smile.

Have a great week, everyone!
