June 2018 Jewish Book Carnival

I'm delighted to be hosting the June 2018 Jewish Book Carnival! The carnival, which appears  on the 15th of each month, brings together an assortment of information on books with Jewish themes.
 
Here are this month's selections: 


At Jewishbooksforkids.com, Barbara Bietz writes about her experience at the TENT workshop for children’s literature at the Yiddish Book Center.

Batya Medad, at Shiloh Musings, reviewed the book East West Street, and she reports that “East West Street is a different kind of mystery or detective story. Sands researched the real participants in the Nuremberg Trials and the development of the case against the Nazis. It was a real eye-opener.”

Every Friday, Erika Dreifus features "Pre-Shabbat Jewish Literary Links" on the My Machberet blog. Here's one recent post.
 
Over on the Jewish Book Review on the Emunaroma blog, Rivka Levy reviews a new Holocaust memoir called We Who Lived, which she describes as "Hava Ben-Tzvi's touching tale of surviving the Holocaust as a 'hidden' Jew in Poland, who later moves to Israel as part of the rebirth of the Jewish people."

And I interviewed Holocaust survivor Irene Butter about her memoir, Shores Beyond Shores.
