Were we on Helen Mirren‘s (Long live the Queen!) home turf right now, we’d be hitting up Jewish Book Week in London. For six glorious days, writers like Martin Amis, Saul Bellow, and Eva Hoffman descend on The Royal National Hotel for fireside-style chats and workshops that will leave you feeling anything but verklempt.
Ever wanted to bend Nora Ephron‘s ear? Look no further! Nora takes the stage on March 3rd in one of the many book panels featured this year. The fest also boasts reading groups and a class on writing crime novels. This year also marks the first masterclass in translating the Bible. Too bad we missed that day in Sunday school.
