New Ves­sel Press, an inde­pen­dent pub­lish­ing house found­ed in NYC last year, is about to release their first six titles. Spe­cial­iz­ing in the trans­la­tion of for­eign lit­er­a­ture into Eng­lish, one of their first books is Some Day by Israeli nov­el­ist, film direc­tor, and screen­writer She­mi Zarhin. The work, trans­lat­ed by Yardenne Greenspan, will be pub­lished this fall. Read more about the Some Day here.

Bonus: The design­er of Some Days cov­er is none oth­er than Liana Finck, this past year’s Jew­ish Book Month poster design­er and past Vis­it­ing Scribe. Can’t say I’m surprised.
