PJ Our Way contest has a winner


In February as part of the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island’s Behind the Book series, Jewish Book Council and PJ Our Way author Casey Breton spoke via Zoom with families about her new novel, “Going Rogue (At Hebrew School),” and how she goes about the writing process.  As a follow up to the event, tweens enrolled in the PJ Our Way program, the "next chapter" of the larger PJ Library program, were given the opportunity to submit entries to the first-ever Jewish Alliance/PJ Our Way writing contest. Entries had to be original, could be any topic of their choosing, fiction, and no more than 1,000 words. Breton agreed to be a judge and gave feedback to all of the young writers. Out of seven entries, Olivia Vilner, 11, of Lincoln, was chosen as the winner.
