Sandra Seltzer Silberman HBI Conversations Series Featuring Susan Weidman Schneider and Yona Zeldis McDonough, editors of "Frankly Feminist: Short Stories by Jewish Women from Lilith Magazine" (HBI Series on Jewish Women)
From Terri Preuss
Join HBI as we discuss this new, groundbreaking short story collection of feminist fiction with its editors, Susan Weidman Schneider and Yona Zeldis McDonough of “Lilith Magazine.”
The range of stories, written by 44 different authors, some bestsellers; others emerging talents with ages ranging from their 20s to their 80s, comes right out of Jewish women’s lives today: transgressive loves, deepening connections, political turmoil, abortion, fear of loss, struggles with fertility, with body and soul, with finding community, with decoding family life. No one voice here represents the whole, but the stories interact with one another, like the tiles in a mosaic or the instruments in orchestral music.
