Step Right Up to the Jewish Book Carnival

Jewish Book Carnival

Welcome to the December 2016/Jewish Book Month stop for the Jewish Book Carnival! The Carnival is a project of one of our favorite organizations: the Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL). In its simplest terms, the Carnival is “a monthly event where bloggers who blog about Jewish books can meet, read and comment on each others’ posts.”

But “bloggers” can be defined broadly. If you run a podcast series, or you edit a publication that regularly posts book reviews/interviews online, you are warmly invited to participate, too. And you’ll notice all kinds of content in our contributors’ offerings this month.

We’re delighted to be hosting the Carnival here on the Fig Tree Books blog for the third time. Especially if you haven’t visited our site before, we encourage you to take a look around to learn more about us. (Please also sure to stop by our newsletter page and sign yourself up for the monthly missive if you’re not already on our mailing list.)

Now: On with the show!

Many thanks to all of this Carnival’s contributors. Happy reading, everyone!
