Mid-Week Notes

Three quick things this week:

  1. The American Jewish Historical Society has begun a series of webinars, “From the Archives.” Yesterday’s installment was about New York poet Emma Lazarus. The webinar included clips with academic experts, a visit to Emma’s brownstone (the exterior), and views of archival documents. Next up in the series: GI Jews.
  2. The project idea for a new YA novel in verse has pretty much decided it wants to be adult prose.
  3. On the agency side: I am putting together a Zoom session, “How to Grab an Agent’s Attention–in a Good Way.” A colleague and I will cover query letters, manuscript preparation, and some dos and don’ts. Stay tuned.

Continue to be safe, wherever you are.

  2. It’s funny how book projects decide what they want to be without much input from us. I will look forwrd to the Zoom session. I hope you are staying well too.
