The NEW Jewish Book Festival

Four Seasons of Literary Excellence

 Now having completed its "sweet" sixteenth year, The NEW Jewish Book Festival is an exciting celebration of nationally renowned Jewish authors and their remarkable contributions to our cultural life. For those who find joy in the written word, the Festival is the only event of its kind in Hartford.

Thousands of visitors have enjoyed the past years of the Festival, attending seminars, meeting celebrity authors at receptions and book signings, and perusing hundreds of books covering an astounding range of topics.

The 2009 series built upon the success of the innovative 2007-2008 Signature Series format, which features four events throughout the year and a separate track of smaller gatherings in our Authors On The Road series. The Signature Series has been so well received that there are full-house crowds for all events.
