It’s true that several local Jewish cultural events don’t even take part within Jewish organizations. I thought I’d take this moment to highlight some Jewish-themed book talks that are associated with the broader Washington community. Please feel free to add any others in comments!

Michelle Adelman, Piece of Mind. A debut novel about a Jewish young adult dealing with a traumatic brain injury. The Jewish Book Council paid special attention to the beautiful cover, understandably!

Howard Jacobson, Shylock is my Name. The Man Booker-winning British Jewish author wrote a contemporary re-telling of The Merchant of Venice. It’s part of the the Hogarth Shakespeare project, in honor of the Bard’s 400th birthday.
Stay tuned to this blog, because I’ll definitely be writing some film reviews, and maybe something from the world of books as well!
