A Celebration of Jewish Books

Stack of Books Sent to JWA

On Sunday, March 11, join JWA and the Jewish Book Council at “A Celebration of Jewish Books,” a day filled with Jewish storytelling and storytellers—more than 50 in all—some you already know and love, others you’ll be thrilled to discover. Listen to and meet authors whose work reflects the dazzling diversity of the Jewish book world, from crime to Yiddish culture, Jewish cooking to historical fiction and serious biographies. JWA specifically is co-sponsoring a panel discussion with Book of Separation author Tova Mirvis and The Lost Wife author Alyson Richman, moderated by The Forever Summer author Jamie Brenner.

Tickets: $18.
