Nice Jewish Books is a podcast focusing on adult Jewish fiction sponsored by the Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL.) Not only is AJL the leading authority on Judaica Librarianship, its members are a community of readers and bibliophiles. On this podcast, we chat with authors about Jewish literature, genre fiction, works in translation, and more. As long as a book has a Jewish theme or character, it’s a candidate for our show!

Picture of Mary Marks in front of one of her quiltsMary Marks created the spunky, middle-aged, plump and curvy, quilting protagonist Martha Rose. Martha and her circle of quilting friends seem to bump into dead bodies with alarming frequency. Luckily, they are able use their observational skills, intuition, and persistence to "help" the police catch the killers.

Join me for a far-reaching conversation about Jewish practice, representation of female characters, quilting, and finding love in her 70's!

Check out her website and buy her books.

Follow her on Facebook to see her quilts.
