Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women is now on view at at the Jewish Museum of Florida – FIU in Miami Beach, where it’ll run through February 16. We’ll also present a panel for the Miami Book Fair International on November 24. Details to come.
Graphic Details, which I co-curated, is inspired by a story I wrote for the Forward. We’ve had successful runs in New York, San Francisco, Toronto, Washington, DC, and Portland.
I’m a dining critic for the NY Daily News, where I also write feature stories. I’ll post new restaurant reviews as they run.
