November is Jewish Book Month.

The East Valley JCC is thrilled to be part of the National JCC Literary Consortium to present the Book Festival of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta.

Below are a list of author presentations and the links to register.

Please note that the links to the Zoom calls that you receive after registration will come from both SHOWCLIX and the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta and NOT the East Valley JCC so please be on the lookout for those emails and check your spam folder if you don’t see them in your inbox before the event. The programs are streamed as Zoom webinars so viewers are not seen or heard but can ask guests questions in the Q&A. All times listed here are Arizona time; the times on the links are EST.
