Nextbook Press social media editor Margarita Korol stopped by New York City’s Museum of Jewish Heritage, located at the bottom of the island of Manhattan (near the Statue of Liberty), earlier today. It has a new exhibit involving Esther Schor’s interactive, annotated version (first published by Nextbook Press) of the famous Emma Lazarus sonnet, “The New Colossus.” Schor also wrote Lazarus’ biography, also for Nextbook Press. Margarita checked out the exhibit and talked to Gabe Sanders and Melissa Martens, of the Museum (and, in Gabe’s case, formerly of Tablet). Check it:
