For 25 successful years, the Book Festival of the MJCCA has provided our community with a literary extravaganza, featuring an exciting lineup of the year's most exceptional authors, celebrities, and influencers. Please join thousands of your fellow book lovers to listen, meet, and interact with your favorite authors in a variety of forums, including author meet-and-greets, book signings, a community read, panel discussions, and much more.

Over the years, the Book Festival has played host to some of the most lauded authors, journalists, scholars, and personalities of our day, including Thomas Friedman, Chris Matthews, Scott Turow, Jeffrey Toobin, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, Alan Alda, Mitch Albom, Pat Conroy, E.L. Doctorow, Norman Mailer, Leon Uris, Elie Wiesel, Rabbi Harold Kushner, Gene Wilder, Annie Leibovitz, Larry King, Madeleine Albright, and Yann Martel -- just to name a few!

From history to mystery, fact to fiction, politics to religion, and humor to political satire, the Book Festival's exceptional repertoire has something to offer all book lovers.
