Author Events

Our book talks showcase leading authors and popular personalities. Attendees have the opportunity to hear, meet and discuss ideas with best-selling authors. Each event is a unique and memorable experience.

We are presenting both in-person events in our theatre, and remote programs, some in partnership with other JCC's. This year's lineup is particularly strong. Be inspired and entertained.
