Big news! JBC is pleased to announced a new partner in our Twitter Book Club series: Jewcy. We've heard from some great authors over the past two years, including Dara Horn, Jennifer Gilmore, David Bezmozgis, Deborah Lipstadt, Nathan Englander, Adam Wilson, and Joshua Henkin, and are excited to continue to bring you great conversation around Jewish literature in collaboration with Jewcy. Check out our October, November, and December book club picks here.

If you're not already familiar with Jewcy, you should head over there right now. They produce some fantastic content, including interesting pieces on Jewish literature, and Jews on literature. We've compiled a few highlights, but be sure to browse their site for more:

Fall Books you should read (or read about)

Jacob Silverman on Gabriel García Márquez and Memory 

Joe Winkler on making Sense of Deborah Feldman and Post-Hasidim Memoirs

Hashtag Update: JBC's Twitter Book Club, which has been running since 2010 under #JBCBooks, will now be using the hashtag #JLit. It's easy to follow the conversation and participate:  At the designated time, just search #JLit in your Twitter feed to follow along, and use #JLit at the end of any question or comment you want to throw into the mix. Simple as that. (More info can be found here.)

It’s tomorrow!
