Something is amiss on the sylvan campus of Fortas College, where the faculty is literally and figuratively getting the axe. But this time the “final girl” — Dr. Gwen Alexander, adjunct instructor — takes matters (and weapons) into her own hands. Trigger warning! This short story contains violence, strong language, and college administrators.

Hear Smart People Talking About Books!

Also I highly recommend you check out The Seventh-Day: Israeli Literature Fifty Years After the Six-Day War. The 14th St Y, in collaboration with the Jewish Book Council, has set up a fascinating series that discusses the volatile nature of Israeli society and its literature fifty years after its shortest of many wars. The mastermind behind the series of the brilliant editor Hanan Elstein.  For free tickets register here.
