Special Issue Information: Spring 1997

In the spring of 1997, Prairie Schooner, one of our country’s oldest and most respected literary magazines, published a special issue devoted entirely to Jewish-American writing. This special issue, almost 300 pages, featured writing by the very best of contemporary American Jewish poets, novelists, essayists, and short-story writers--fiction-writers like Robin Hemley, Rebecca Goldstein, and Daniel Stern; poets like Marilyn Hacker, David Ignatow, Cynthia Macdonald, Alicia Ostriker, Linda Pastan and Mark Rudman; and essays by poet Robin Becker and noted critic Sanford Pinsker, plus much more.

Prairie Schooner‘s special issue, funded in part through grants from the Littauer Foundation of New York City and the Norman and Bernice Harris Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is the most comprehensive and distinguished one-volume compilation of Jewish-American literature to appear in twenty years. It will make an ideal text for courses or discussions in Jewish-American culture and literature.

Please join us in celebrating this rich harvest of Jewish-American writing.
