Michelle Cameron

NCJW, West Morris member Michelle Cameron, a novelist and poet, is the award-winning author of a new novel—her third one—titled Beyond the Ghetto Gates (She Writes Press). Beyond the Ghetto Gates recently won the Silver Medal for Historical Fiction at the Independent Book Publishers Awards. Michelle was our special guest speaker at the Paid-Up Membership Meeting on Thursday evening, November 12, at 7 p.m. via Zoom. Please note this revised date for our Paid-Up Membership Meeting. We joined with members of the Morristown Jewish Center Sisterhood for this online gathering.

Members were able to pick up copies of Michelle’s new book in advance (contact Dorothy Cohen, dorothy_irvingcohen@msn.com). A portion of the proceeds from the book sales went to our Section. Reading the book before Michelle’s talk made the event even more meaningful for our paid-up members.

All paid-up members were able to participate in the Nov. 12 online event free of charge. Membership dues are $40 a year or $108 for a three-year membership.
