I promise to write about the Jewish Fiction Writers' Conference I attended on Sunday in the coming days. In the meantime, here are a few noteworthy links:
Over on the Jewish Book Council's blog, Naomi Firestone shares information about creative writing seminars to be held this summer in Jerusalem.
Naomi also breaks this story: "We’ve been waiting years for the Jewish equivalent of Samantha, Kirsten, Felicity, Molly, Nellie, and Addie, and we finally have it: Rebecca Rubin. Rebecca will be officially released in May 2009." (Now I'll have a particularly good reason to take my niece to American Girl Place.)
And on a much more somber note (via an interested friend): Bradley Burston's response to Anne Roiphe, and others.
