#BookLover

The mission of BookFest is to celebrate the written word brought to us by Jewish authors and books with Jewish content. Each year we seek the very best authors and books to provide a window to the Jewish experience and give our community members the opportunity to engage with the person behind the book while discovering what inspires the author in his or her creative work.

Programs will be recorded and made available to ticket holders upon request to rweisscrane@jccddallas.org  for 7 days after the program has aired.   

Many programs are presented in partnership with the National JCC Literary Consortium: Atlanta, Baltimore, Boulder, Cherry Hill, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, Indianapolis, Memphis, Miami, Nashville, Palm Beach Gardens, Palo Alto, Rochester, and Seattle (not all JCCs participate in all programs)
