Conference Proceeding: Stories to Savor: A Presentation by the AJL Jewish Fiction Award Committee

Over one hundred works of fiction with Jewish content are published each year by mainstream, Jewish, and small, independent presses. So many books, so little time! How do we sift through the good, the great, and the not-so-great? How can reading books with Jewish characters and themes help educate, enlighten and inspire us? What are the new trends in the Jewish publishing world? Explore the latest and greatest in Jewish fiction for adult readers with the members of the new AJL Fiction Award Committee and come prepared to share some of your favorite new titles. Our special guest will be the inaugural award winner, Rachel Kadish, who will offer behind-the-scenes insights into the winning work.
