October 2019 to April 2020
The Nashville Jewish Book Series is an annual celebration of books, authors and ideas. It features work on Jewish themes and topics, work by Jewish authors or work from a Jewish perspective. Unlike traditional book festivals, our series runs over a longer time-frame, so you have a chance to do and see more! The 2019-2020 Jewish Book Series schedule will be posted soon. Please check back here or contact Alex Heller for more information.
