Jewish Book Council is pleased to be this month's Jewish Book Carnival host. The series, which is about to celebrate its 2-year anniversary, is a monthly event where book bloggers who promote Jewish literature come together to share some of their best content from the past month. Take a look at the below links, read the great articles, reviews, and interviews, and feel free to join the conversation by commenting on the posts. 

We'll kick this one off with a few May reading lists on our site, which you can find here.

Leora Wenger shares her Holocaust reading list in honor of Yom HaShoah (find JBC's list here).

On My Machberet, Erika Dreifus reflects on the late Anthony Shadid's memoir, House of Stone.

Listen to Heidi Estrin's podcast interview with Marc Tyler Nobleman, author of Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman, over at The Book of Life.

Jonathan Kirsch reviews Benjamin Taylor's Naples Declared in The Jewish Journal.

Jean Naggar, author of the memoir Sipping from the Nile: My Exodus from Egypt, shares her thoughts on the art of the memoir with AJL's People of the Books.

Over at The Whole Megillah, Barbara Krasner reviews the new picture book Jean Laffite, The Pirate Who Saved America and interviews Ellen Cassedy, author of We Are Here.

The Hebrew Union College’s Libraries got a rare peek at everyday life in the Holocaust era ghettos with the donation of Lodz Ghetto money (and the cataloger got a dose of realia).
