Josina Manu Maltzman is a carpenter by trade, a writer by passion, and a rabble-rouser by everything else. Jo is in the MFA program at Goddard College and is currently working on the novella Dreaming Kaddish, a mytho-biography. This story spans multiple generations of a Jewish family, relating historical trauma to cycles of violence, both intimate and global.
