Repost: April Jewish Carnival

Thanks so much to Mirta Ines Trupp for hosting the April Jewish Carnival.

 This month on gilagreenwrites, Gila interviews author Sharon Kirsch on her new book The Smallest Objective. According to Kirsch, the book is categorized as a memoir but it is a "hybrid of genres."

After a brief hiatus, Life Is Like a Library is back with a review of Rebel Daughter, the new historical fiction by Lori Banov Kaufmann. You can find it here: http://lifelibrary-ksp.blogspot.com/2021/04/with-rebel-yell.html

A Jewish Grandmother, who has been an Israeli for half a century, really enjoyed reading Because It's Israel: An Aliyah Odyssey. Batya says, "you'll love the book whether you're in Israel or any place else in the world." https://me-ander.blogspot.com/2021/03/because-its-israel-aliyah-odyssey-book.html

Deborah Kalb interviews a variety of authors on her website, Book Q&As with Deborah Kalb. Here's a recent interview she did with Jacqueline Jules about her new poetry collection, Manna in the Morning.

In April, Jill at Rhapsody in Books reviewed The Passover Guest by Susan Kusel, which is a retelling of the famous I.L. Peretz story, The Magician. Kusel's story is set in Washington, D.C. during the Great Depression, and it is a delight! Both kids and adults will love it.
