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.
