Forward Contributor Julia M. Klein Among National Book Critics Circle Finalists

As the Forward reported yesterday, the 2016 finalists for a number of National Book Critics Circle Awards include Jewish authors from Michael Chabon to Robert Pinsky.

While the prize for excellence in reviewing has already been decided — the honor went to Michelle Dean, who shared that one of the reviews to help her garner the award was of Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Here I Am” — the Forward’s contributing book critic Julia M. Klein was a finalist for the award.

In 2016, Klein’s book reviews for the Forward included several of books on the Holocaust and a gleeful look at Gerri Hirshey’s “dishy” biography of Cosmopolitan Magazine founder Helen Gurley Brown.
