Jewish Daily Forward: Jewish Picture Books: A Magical Mixture

A new exhibit, “Monsters and Miracles: A Journey Through Jewish Picture Books,” opening in Los Angeles on April 8 at the Skirball Cultural Center, presents a chronological and historical context of how the Jewish picture book has evolved. Exhibit co-curator Ilan Stavans, Amherst College’s Lewis-Sebring Professor in Latin American and Latino Culture and a contributing editor at the Jewish Daily Forward newspaper spoke with a reporter about the show in a lengthy Q&A.
