Jewish Book Carnival

The September Jewish Book Carnival is here! The Jewish Book Carnival is a monthly round-up of some of the great reviews, interviews, and articles about Jewish books and authors from around the web. This month's Carnival is being hosted by Naomi Firestone-Teeter, blogger at The Prosen People, the blog of the Jewish Book Council. Naomi says "Hosting an early fall Jewish Book Carnival is particularly exciting, as we get to provide you with lots of interesting reads to munch on right before the holidays!"

We begin the New Year with a new batch of postings in the Jewish book blogosphere. I especially love seeing the year's prizes and "best of" lists for inspiration (and for mental arguments)

The Jewish Book Council announces their 2012 National Jewish Book Awards and posts their most anticipated 2013 spring titles from the Jewish Book Council.

Jonathan Kirsch reviewed The Rarest Blue by Baruch Sterman and Judy Taubes Sterman in The Jewish Journal, which bestowed its 2013 Jewish Journal Book Prize on the authors.

On MyMachberet, Erika Dreifus shares some thoughts about Karen E. Bender's new novel, A Town of Empty Rooms.

Leora Wenger reviews Jews in Gotham: New York Jews in a Changing City by Jeffrey S. Gurock, a professor of history at Yeshiva University. This volume is the last of the series City of Promises and encompasses the years 1920 to 2010.

 Ann Koffsky reviews three recent picture books about Israel.

 Lorri M. offers two reviews. In  Saving Monticello:  The Levy Family's Epic Quest to Rescue the House that Jefferson Built, by Marc Leepson, the author has given the reader an amazing overview of actual facts, data, events, timelines and the struggles that the Jewish Levy family endured, including the underlying antisemitism that was a product of the era.  Jewish Roots in Southern Soil:  A New History, by Marcie Ferris and Mark I. Greenberg, contains thirteen intellectual and fascinating essays, which defines factors that differentiate “southern Jews” from the general Jewish population.

The Whole Megillah | The Writer's Resource for Jewish Story blog - offers an interview with poet Matthew Lippman.

Needle in the Bookstacks searches for recipes to warm up the winter.





The Jewish Book Carnival is a monthly event where book bloggers who promote Jewish literature come together to share some of their best content from the past month. Hosted by a different blog each month, the Carnival offers a roundup of links to great articles, book reviews, essays, and interviews.

The seed for the Jewish Book Carnival was planted when AJL blogger Heidi Estrin attended the first Book Blogger Convention at Book Expo America in 2010. She brought the idea to AJL consultant Marie Cloutier, and together they recruited other bloggers and set up the Jewish Book Carnival.

The first Jewish Book Carnival was posted in July, 2010, two years ago this month. It was hosted on AJL's own blog, People of the Books. You can see that very first post here. From the outset, the Carnival got excellent participation across the blogosphere. Regular contributors include The Prosen People (the blog of the Jewish Book Council), The Whole Megillah, My Machberet, Jewesses with Attitude (the blog of the Jewish Women's Archive), Homeshuling, and more. See the Jewish Book Carnival HQ for links to participating blogs, and for an archive of past Carnivals.

This anniversary Carnival is hosted by The Whole Megillah: The Writer's Resource for Jewish-themed Story: Fiction, Nonfiction and Poetry.  Barbara Krasner, writer, editor, and member of AJL's Sydney Taylor Book Award committee, is the blog host. She posts excellent interviews with members of the Jewish literary community, from authors to agents to librarians, as well as beautifully clear book reviews. This month she graciously hosts the July Jewish Book Carnival, which includes reviews, interviews, and personal essays.

Thanks to all the bloggers who make the Jewish Book Carnival happen, and to the readers who care about Jewish books!
