James H. Grossmann Memorial
Jewish Book Month Celebration

Jewish Book Month speaks to the mission of our Center; to heighten awareness of one's Jewish identity and enrich our Jewish lives. We have always been "the people of the book," and the celebration of Jewish Book Month gives us a wonderful opportunity to transmit our values to the entire community as well as to future generations. The celebration continues throughout the year with programs featuring Jewish authors and books of Jewish interest.

Book Event: A Sunday of Strong Women

Authors, lunch, inspiration

Join us for a day of inspiration, laughs and lunch as three female authors teach us about empowering ourselves in different ways. Discuss serious ideas with women who are seriously funny.

Authors include:

Gayle Forman Leave Me, a novel that asks the question: “where does our obligation to family end and our duty to ourselves begin?” Forman is a best-selling and award-winning novelist. Her book If I Stay was adapted into a movie in 2014.

Lisa Smith Girl Walks Out of a Bar, a memoir about the gritty reality of alcoholism and addiction in the life of a successful professional woman. Smith practiced corporate finance law at a leading international law firm.

Judy Batalion White Walls, a memoir about motherhood, daughterhood and the mess in between. A Harvard grad, Judy also has her PhD in Art History from The Courtauld. She is a stand-up comedian as well as a writer.
