I don't recall if I ever told you, but Merenga Publishers of Tel Aviv will be bringing out a Hebrew translation of some of my short stories in May 2013. The publisher, Milcah Klein, has selected stories with a female protagonist from my collections, Twist of Malice and Scattered Light.
The book launch will be in Tel Aviv on May 26 or 27. The publisher is still mulling over a title, so of course the cover isn't ready, although the cover art has been selected. It's by the well-known Israeli artist Malka Inbal.
I'm leaving for Tel Aviv on May 21 and (besides going to my launch) will be visiting Jerusalem and Massada and Galilee. Very exciting.
My (Jewish) granddaughter Naomi is coming, too. She’s in her final year of Arts at Dalhousie Univiersity in Halifax. She has great talent as an artist and poet. I'm confident, you'll be hearing about her someday.
All the best,
Jean Rae Baxter
