JBC Author Series

Jewish Book Council is the longest-running organization devoted exclusively to the support and celebration of Jewish literature. 
For over seventy years, they have used literature to bring people together for meaningful discussions around Jewish life, identity, and culture. As a part of the JBC network, we are thrilled to welcome authors from far and wide to our community here in Port Washington, to share their teachings with us throughout the year.

Join Jewish Book Council and internationally best-selling author David Grossman in a conversation about love, trauma, and healing. More Than I Love My Life is the story of three generations of women on an unlikely journey to a Croatian island and a secret that needs to be told, written by Booker Prize winner, Sapir Prize winner, and two-time National Jewish Book Award winner David Grossman. He will be joined by Jewish Book Council’s own Marilyn Hassid, in a conversation that will allow the audience a peek inside his inspiration for writing this book and more.
