I can’t wait for everyone to meet Hannah — a put-upon eldest sister and cousin — who doesn’t want to give up her starring role in the family seder. She has a story to tell. A story with fighting and snakes, floods and escapes, music and matzo.
“Music and Matzo” is my contribution to the new middle grade anthology, On All Other Nights, edited by authors Chris Baron, Joshua Levy, and Naomi Milliner. The stories in this Junior Library Guild Gold Standard anthology follow the order of the Passover seder.
“In this unprecedented collection of short stories, 14 bestselling and award-winning authors each reimagine a different step of the seder for today’s young readers. Through historical and contemporary fiction, verse and prose, fiction and nonfiction, these gifted writers from different Jewish traditions and backgrounds gather around the seder table and invite everyone to join them.”
