when the works of Heine, Mendelssohn

The calendar and a companion trav-

which develops fresh ways of think-
ing about Jews and gender world-
wide. The calendar is a combo
Jewish and secular one — the
Jewish month/day is noted on the
"day box" for the secular date.
Jewish holidays are noted, too.
The women whose photos/biograph-

Israeli novelist Ronit Matalon was born
into a family of Egyptian-Jewish descent
in 1959 and studied literature and phi-
losophy at Tel Aviv University. She has
worked as a journalist for Israel
Television and for the daily newspaper
Ha'Aretz, and published two novels, one
book of short stories, a collection of
essays and a book for children.
She is one of a group of young Israeli
writers who are exploring through fiction
some of the issues confronting their
country and the Middle East today.
Matalon's most recent novel, Bliss
(English translation, Henry Holt, 2003), a
best-seller in Israel, explores the friend-
ship of two women, one burning with a
sense of national guilt about her coun-
try's treatment of the Palestinians, the
other passive and experiencing life vicar-
iously through her friend.
The Ann Arbor Library hosts Matalon
in two discussions as part of a series of
eight programs in 2005-06 titled "Middle
