It’s awards season again and the announcement just came in of the most coveted awards in the Jewish calendar year: The Jewish Book Council’s Jewish Book Awards. (Jewish. Book. Jewish Book. Just wanted to say those words a few more times.)
Rabbi Joseph Telushkin (winner, Jewish Book of the Year for “A Code of Jewish Ethics”) and sixteen other winners in as many categories will be honored at a gala awards ceremony at the 56th Annual National Jewish Book Awards, to be held at the Center for Jewish History in Manhattan, located at 15 W16th Street, on March 6th. As in years past, the awards ceremony will be free and open to the public and acclaimed authors Ari L. Goldman and Samuel G. Freedman will serve as masters of ceremonies.
And yes, there are women who are being honored. Dara Horn won for her book, “The World to Come.”
Rumor has it that Dolce & Gabbana are slated to dress Ms. Horn, while the emcees will be wearing Armani; the pre-awards red carpet ceremonies are to be hosted by Kathy Griffin.
