Feedback form is now closed.

How do writers of Jewish books for children balance the need to provide educational and celebratory books about Jewish holidays and tell important Holocaust narratives while still ensuring a diversity of Jewish stories? Where are the stories about contemporary Jewish kids, about Sephardic kids, about lesser-known happenings in Jewish history? Why isn’t the range of Jewish identity reflected in books for young readers? In this conversation, led by moderator Sidura Ludwig, three authors of new Jewish middle grade novels talk about the importance of telling a variety of Jewish stories.
