The 12th Annual Hyman S. & Freda Bernstein Jewish Literary Festival, presented by the Washington DC Jewish Community Center’s Morris Cafritz Center for the Arts, promises to “appeal to book-lovers with diverse interests including history, humor, fiction, politics, children’s stories and many more.”
I’ll say. The line-up runs the gamut from comedian Sarah Silverman with her autobiography The Bedwetter to Princeton University Press authors Jerry Muller, author of Capitalism and the Jews, and Samuel Heilman, author of the controversial biography The Rebbe: The Life and Afterlife of Menachem Mendel Schneerson.
The Festival runs from October 17–27, 2010. A full list of events and descriptions can be found at washingtondcjcc.org/litfest.
