The Refresh: Author-to-Author Interview with Judith Sara Gelt

The matches authors with each other to conduct interviews. My match was Judith Sara Gelt, whose memoir Reckless Steps Toward Sanity, was published by University of New Mexico Press in March 2019. Here is the opening to our interview:

Both Judith Sara Gelt’s memoir, Reckless Steps Towards Sanity, and Julie Zuckerman’s novel-in-stories, The Book of Jeremiah, deal with Jewish families, and both are being published by small presses, but nearly everything else – the way they began writing, and particularly their paths to publication – were vastly different. They found plenty to talk about, though, and their conversation went on for about five times longer than we have space!
