Apparently my beat these days is underappreciated-by-the-youth-of-today classic Jewish-y children’s books. Last installment: The Carp in the Bathtub. This time: Amy Elizabeth Explores Bloomingdale’s. It’s by the author of From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler! It’s funny!
I also reviewed the Stuart Weitzman show at the New-York Historical Society, about the history of women’s footwear. Meh. But really pretty. (And my editor Wayne came up with a SUPERB title.)
Plus in the New York Times Book Review this week, I wrote about three very different short-story collections for kids.
In non-writing news, we are bingeing Season 2 of Glow. I love this show.
Also, in other positive news, here are the badasses of Urban Librarians Unite (“WE WILL NOT BE SHUSHED”) and their Storytime Protests.
