The Book Meshuggenahs’ mission is to be a resource for teachers, librarians, and parents by sharing quality, diverse Jewish children’s literature, and educational materials.
“There’s never been a one-stop-shop for Jewish themed and character-driven books, but we’ve changed that,” said the fair’s organizer Karen Rostoker-Gruber, New Jersey-based author of 16 award-winning, traditionally published children’s books. “Virtual book fairs are more important than ever because of the pandemic. All order taking is virtual.” An online special events bookseller called Author, Author! is handling sales.
To join the book fair, email TheBookMeshuggenahs@gmail.com. Order forms will be sent with live links to order a wide variety of books about Jewish holidays, life, history, and culture. The books are organized by reading level from kindergarten through 8th grade and include both fiction and nonfiction. Books will be shipped directly to schools for free. A home delivery option is also available for a fee.
