Today in Tablet Magazine, on the weekly Vox Tablet podcast, editor, writer, and publisher Daniel Menaker, an amateur chatter of the highest order, discusses fine conversation with Joshua Halberstam, the author of Schmoozing. Parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall asks various writes to recall the young-adult Holocaust novels that traumatized (and morbidly fascinated) them as kids. Josh Lambert anticipates several books for grown-ups set to come out soon. And, to return to the theme of schmoozing, we hope to do the ancient art justice today on The Scroll.
