Mission Statement

Since the inception of our annual Fall Book Fest in 2009, we have strived to achieve the following goals:

·     Present authors and books that encourage learning and community conversation

·     Promote reading, writing, and awareness of Jewish culture through books of all genres

·     Offer a rich variety of stimulating in-person author programs  with wide appeal.


Tickets are $10 for attending each event at the J or at home. The luncheon event is $20.  A series pass which includes all eight events is $85.

A Mensch pass may be purchased for $118 which helps to underwrite the cost of presenting this series. This includes entrance to all events for one person. We also welcome and greatly appreciate individual donor contributions to assist in underwriting the costs of the series. Please contact Phyllis Wolf, Chief Programs Officer, 505-418-4469 for more information about being a donor.

Tickets and information are available at, by calling 505-418-4469, or by stopping by the JCC.


Books will be available from the JCC or at either of the Fest’s bookselling partners, Bookworks, 4022 Rio Grande Blvd. NW, and Page 1 Books, 5850 Eubank Blvd. NE.
