November 12, 1998|By Karin Remesch

"A Jewish Literary Feast" kicks off the Jewish Community Center's 1998 Jewish Book Festival Sunday evening at the Gordon Center For Performing Arts. You'll be able to meet, speak with and have books signed by national and local authors and enjoy light fare and music. Among the authors expected to attend are Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, author of "From Beirut to Jerusalem"; Burton Visotzky, whose seminars on the Jewish Theological Seminary inspired Bill Moyers' "Genesis" series on public television; Gil Marks, a Jewish cookbook author; and Aaron Levin, author of "Testament." The book festival continues through Nov. 23 with a variety of guests, including Harriett Lerner and Rabbi Joseph Telushkin. Throughout the festival, hundreds of books are offered at a book store. And an afternoon for children is scheduled for Nov. 22.

The festival is at 3506 Gwynnbrook Ave. The Jewish Literary Feast starts at 6:30 p.m. and tickets are $18, $15 seniors; times and tickets to other programs vary; admission to the book store is free. Book store hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday. Call 410-356-5200, Ext. 324.
