We’re 21 …

… and my how we’ve grown! We’ve got a new look with something for everyone: humor, history, friendship, romance, family, music, sports, and spirituality. As we celebrate 21 years of bringing Jewish literature and culture to our community, we are expanding our repertoire with an exceptional lineup of culture, comedy, and classics. This year we are proud to present a community read, a musical performance, an afternoon tea, panel discussions, a film screening, a brunch, the annual fiction luncheon, and the return of Beer ‘n Books at the Genesee Valley Club. Opening night features comedian Marion Grodin, daughter of Charles Grodin. Her hilarious memoir, Standing Up, integrates the challenges of everyday life with her unstoppable ability to make everything funny. We are especially grateful to the Lane Dworkin family, whose generosity continues to enhance Sheldon Lane’s dream of bringing Jewish literature to our community. We look forward to seeing you!

The Lane Dworkin Jewish Book Festival exists to create a showcase for Jewish authors and/or books of Jewish content. In so doing, the Festival promotes awareness, appreciation, and pride in the diversity of the Jewish people; strengthens com
munity consciousness of Jewish identity, history, and culture; and provides a community forum to stimulate dynamic and provocative dialogue.
