Yona Zeldis McDonough is our Facebook Writer-in-Residence during the month of July! She is the author of four novels, the most recent of which, A WEDDING IN GREAT NECK, will be out in October 2012. She is also the author of 19 books for children, including THE DOLL WITH THE YELLOW STAR, which won an award from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and THE CATS IN THE DOLL SHOP, which was named a notable book by the Sydney Taylor committee. Additionally, she is the editor of two essay collections and her essays, stories and articles have appeared in numerous national and literary publications. For the past twelve years, she has been the fiction editor at Lilith Magazine, a feminist, Jewish quarterly. Learn more about her at www.yonazeldismcdonough.com
We're only a few days into July, but already Yona has provided us with links to interesting blogs, literary events, author websites, and prize-winning Jewish fiction.
You don't need to be a Facebook user to access these links (although logging into Facebook and "liking" AJL will allow you to leave your own comments). To view Yona's reading suggestions, simply go to facebook.com/jewishlibraries
Let us know what you think of our new Facebook Writer-in-Residence program, whether you think we should do it again, and to suggest writers from whom you'd like to hear.
