For some reason the fall is when a plethora of book-related festivals and events burst out everywhere in the area, and one of the early leaders is coming to a close over the next five days: the Jewish Literary Festival at the 16th street JCC. I think the most interesting item on deck is Andrea Askowitz’s talk on Sunday about her amusingly named book, My Miserable, Lonely Lesbian Pregnancy.
Okay, maybe I have a curious definition of amusing. And my opinion might be colored by the fact that Askowitz is a professor from my alma mater. And because brunch is included in the price.
But there’s a schedule of other events running between now and the close on Wednesday. None of the remaining events are free but at $9 for the non-brunch events they’re not going to break the bank either.
