Jewish Book Week
Jewish Book Week is coming up quickly. Here's a couple of things that look good: Bookniks: Postcards From the Unholy Land, with Etger Keret and others (chaired by Keith of Metal Jew); The Illusion of Return - Samir El-Youssef in conversation with Linda Grant (spondored by Peace Oil) [I just got the book as a present from my sister - might review it here when I read it!]; a session on Louis Jacobs, chaired by Engagenik Josh Cohen; Paul Kriwaczek on the Yiddish civilization; the wonderful Howard Jacobson.
