Beth El Synagogue and the Levin JCC, in a unique partnership with the Jewish Book Council, welcome you to the Triangle’s first-of-its-kind Jewish Authors Book Festival. Each day of the seven-day-long festival will feature best-selling authors, world-renowned poets, and industry-influencing filmmakers speaking about their work and processes, reading excerpts from and signing their books. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet our special guests, ask questions, and purchase books from local retailer Flyleaf Books. Light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served each day. Scroll down to see who’s coming when!
