Mid-Week Field Notes | July 28, 2021

Some quick things:

  1. One of my #52snapshots, “An American Constellation,” about my paternal grandmother and her three sons in the American armed forces during World War II, will appear next week in the Jewish Literary Journal. I will send out the link when I get it.
  2. For that piece, I applied Emily Stoddard’s “Throughlines,” a revision process that really brings out the nuances of a draft. I’m in her program now and working with an essay about my maternal grandfather. This process helps me understand my ancestors better, and I highly recommend it.
  3. Also still working on my Holocaust children’s literature database of some 700 books from 1952-2020. The codifying is taking longer than anticipated.
