  2. Great post. Do you know if there’s a specific Web page/online announcement about the Emerging Author Program? Is the emerging author selected by application or invitation?

    • Hi There. The Emerging Author Program recognizes one author who will appear at our Annual Jewish Book & Arts Fair. It’s all based on “gut”–something I’ve developed over the last 25 years. Meaning, I have an author in mind, my committee of 50 (yes, 50!) meets and although he/she is on the list for consideration for the Fair, no one knows who I feel is the next great “emerging author.”

  3. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond.
