The 31st edition of the Book Festival of the MJCCA started on Oct. 12 with Jodi Picoult & Jennifer Finney Boylan, “Mad Honey: A Novel” as the first in-person event to kick off the festival, followed by Benjamin Netanyahu’s new release, “Bibi My Story” and continues through Nov. 19, 2022.

Most of the festival will continue with in-person author talks, audience Q & A’s and book signings. There are fifteen events mentioned in this preview, either by readers that share a peek into the books presented or on our easy-to-read schedule on page 37.

Atlanta Jewish Times joins Greenberg Traurig as “presenting sponsors” of this year’s book festival. We are looking forward to joining our readers and the rest of the community at two special events we’re sponsoring; Bernie Marcus with Catherine Lewis to share the new release by Bernie Marcus, “Kick Up Some Dust: Lessons from the Co-Founder of the Home Depot on Thinking Big, Giving Back, and Doing it Yourself,” with co-writer Catherine Lewis, Executive Director, Museum of History and Holocaust Education & Professor of History, Kennesaw State University on Sunday, Nov. 6; and then again to root on a former employee of the AJT, Roni Robbins with her new book, “Hands of Gold” on Thursday, Nov. 10. Make sure you come and enjoy added sweets and drinks to celebrate Robbins’ publishing success.

The next few pages are just a peak under the cover of the books being presented at this year’s 31st Book Festival of the MJCCA. Make sure to get your tickets early at, and for in-person events at the Marcus JCC masks are optional. The Book Festival of the MJCCA is one of the most highly regarded cultural events in the Southeast and you will not want to miss out on this one.
