We had a great time last night at the JCC in Manhattan, where Kveller editor Deborah Kolben moderated a conversation with Mayim Bialik about her new book, Beyond the Sling. Since we’re so internet-y all the time, it’s always nice to see people in the flesh, so here’s a shot with Mayim and some of the ladies of Kveller!
