Three quick things this week:
- For the next few weeks I will be deep in revision on various projects, especially my bio in verse. I’m reading other novels in verse and just good poetry to keep me inspired. Any suggestions?
- Today is Yom HaShoah and there are so many online events to commemorate the Holocaust today, this week, and this month.
- Last Chance to Register: Coming up this evening at 6 pm ET to commemorate Yom HaShoah: The Mercer Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Center is hosting a conversation with Scott Miller, retired Director of Curatorial Affairs at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and co-author of Refuge Denied; Hans Fisher, professor emeritus of Rutgers University and MS St. Louis passenger; and me, Barbara Krasner, director of the Mercer Center and author of 37 Days at Sea: Aboard the MS St. Louis, 1939.
