26th Edition of the Book Festival of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta
For more than 25 years, the Book Festival of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta has offered a two-week literary extravaganza featuring an exciting lineup of the year’s most exceptional authors. Each year, thousands of book lovers come together to listen, meet, and interact with their favorite authors in a variety of forums, including panel discussions, author meet-and-greets, a community read, children’s activities, and much more.
Keynote authors include Justice Stephen Breyer (The Court and the World); Walter Isaacson (Leonardo da Vinci); Jeff Rossen (Rossen to the Rescue); Reza Aslan (God: A Human History); Joy Mangano (Inventing Joy); Dave Barry, Adam Mansbach, and Alan Zweibel (For This We Left Egypt?); Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush (Sisters First); Dan Rather (What Unites Us); and Al Franken (Giant of the Senate).
This event is supported by a grant from Georgia Humanities.
