The Whole Megillah

Barbara Krasner launched a new blog on May 5, 2010 to provide writers of Jewish-themed children’s books with information on editors, agents, librarians, authors, research venues, and book reviews. To date, the blog has offered:

  • Entries on the history of Jewish children’s literature, adapted from a talk given by Lisa Silverman, library director of Sinai Temple in Los Angeles and children’s book review editor of Jewish Book World
  • Videos from the editor/agent panel of the May 2010 Highlights Foundation workshop, “Writing Jewish-themed Children’s Books,” which I led (including Devorah Leah Rosenfeld of Hachai Publishing, Francoise Bui of Delacorte, Rubin Pfeffer of East/West Literary, Mary Kole of Andrea Brown Literary, and Carolyn Yoder of Calkins Creek Books and Highlights)
  • Interviews with authors Rich Michelson and Jacqueline Dembar Greene
  • Reviews/experiences at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC and the Museum of Jewish Heritage in NYC
Stop by and give it a look.  Barbara is providing a service for our Jewish writers and illustrators, so make sure you take advantage of what is being provided.
Talk tomorrow,


  1. Indeed, The Whole Megillah is an incredible resource that just keeps growing.
