Taking it literally

Audrey Ferber

Neither BART strike nor lack of parking in the Mission District prevented more than 50 book lovers from attending “Nu? Words! New Jewish Writing from J,” J.’s debut session at Lit Crawl on Oct. 19 at Four Barrel Coffee in San Francisco. Editor Sue Fishkoff moderated readings by local short-story author Audrey Ferber (above), and by fellow writers Jason Friedman, Michael Alenyikov, Ilana DeBare, Sam Sattin and poet Joan Gelfand.
