Rachel Barenbaum’s “masterfully plotted” new novel, Atomic Anna, is a genre-bending, soul-searching book that you won’t want to put down!

Three generations of remarkable Jewish women travel through time and work together to prevent the greatest nuclear disaster of the 20th century. As they grapple with the power their discoveries hold, they wonder: If you have the power to change the past, should you?

Barenbaum is a prolific writer – she joined HBI Conversations in 2019 with her thrilling debut “A Bend in the Stars” – and reviewer whose work has appeared in publications such as the LA Review of Books, the Tel Aviv Review of BooksLitHubCrimeReadsHey Alma! and more. She will be a HBI Scholar in Residence this fall and has been a HBI Research Associate for the past two years. HBI is honored to have supported Rachel Barenbaum’s writing during this project.

A Publication of the HBI Series on Jewish Women.

Join HBI as we speak and learn with Tamar Biala, editor of “Dirshuni: Contemporary Women’s Midrash,” the first ever English edition of an historic collection of midrashim composed by Israeli women.

“How thrilling to have this rich collection of women’s midrashim in our hands. The melding of scholarship, deep insight, and creativity in this brilliantly edited volume yields fresh new feminist perspectives on classical Jewish tradition. We are truly blessed to have this resource for understanding biblical texts and rabbinic commentaries.” — Marcia Falk, author of “Night of Beginnings: A Passover Haggadah”
