2022 Jewish Book Festival

Welcome to the 24th Annual Jewish Book Festival


It’s that time again to celebrate our love of books!

The Jewish Book Festival Committee is proud to present this year’s exciting lineup of authors. We have not only added more author events, but we have broadened our range of topics that we hope will appeal to an even more diverse audience. And more of the events are in-person, for those wanting to connect again, meet the authors, purchase books, and even get them signed! Of course, we will continue with our virtual programs to remain accessible to everyone.


This year, the Jewish Book Festival Committee has launched a new program: One Book, One Community! Our community members, book clubs, and synagogues have the chance to read and discuss one special book in-depth and then gather at the Jewish Book Festival to meet and hear from the author in-person. Our first selection, A Play for the End of the World, has won the National Jewish Book Award for debut fiction.


With the ongoing support of our partners in the Literary Circle, we invite you to celebrate the joy of reading and lifelong learning with us. We look forward to seeing you beginning October 23rd!

Dear Community, 

The 24th annual Jewish Book Festival is coming up this Fall and we couldn’t be more excited.  As you probably know, the Jewish Book Festival is one of the valuable ways we at the Jewish Federation work to keep our community connected.

 

Community support has been invaluable not just for helping our community attract top authors, but also to help us meet the technology challenges of the past two years. Thanks to that generosity, we’ve been able to bring our community exciting conversations with eminent authors as far away as Israel and the UK. We’ve been able to go from all-virtual basic events to running hybrid in-person/livestreaming moderated events smoothly and securely. Attendance at our events last year was higher than ever, including many audience members from out of state!

 

This year, we’re partnering with our synagogues across the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys to co-host more dynamic in-person/webinar hybrid events. We’re expanding the Jewish Book Festival itself with more events and a broader range of topics to reach an even more diverse audience, including younger readers, and Jews of different backgrounds.

 

Literary Circle members will be acknowledged in the Jewish Book Festival brochure as well as in print and online publicity. You may designate your contribution in memory of a loved one or in honor of someone special. To be included in the 2022 Jewish Book Festival brochure, please be sure to return the enclosed form by August 4, 2022.

 

Thank you in advance for helping us bring our large and diverse Jewish community together in celebration of Jewish Book Month. We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Jewish Book Festival.
