Prize lists

There are many lists in the literary world: bestsellers, prize winners, someone’s favorite. A fairly new prize is The Sami Rohr Prize, established in 2006 by Mr. Rohr’s familty to honor this businessman and philanthropist’s love of Jewish literature. We happen to have the winner: The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit: My Family’s Exodus from Old Cairo to the New World; and two runners up: Houses of Study: A Jewish Woman Among Books, and The Price of Whiteness: Jews, Race and American Identity. Add one of these to your beach reading list and expand your mind this summer.
