The Harrisburg JCC and Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg has teamed up with the JCC Literary Consortium to bring dozens of the most popular and talented authors working today right into your living room through the Book Festival of the MJCCA.

 

We invite you to join us for numerous events running now through Mid-November and to be inspired and educated by the stories and ideas of these great authors, all while supporting the Harrisburg JCC and Jewish Federation. Half of the profits from each ticket purchase will be shared with the JCC/Federation and support Jewish life in our area!

 

Pre-Registration is required for all events. See the list of events below and check back often as new author events are being added! Click on any event for more info and registration.
